i got centos 4.0 on gsx 3.2 w/o issue. when installing the vmware-tools package i had to install kernel source and compile it for the headers so the tools install could make custom modules.

up2date kernel-source
cd /usr/src
ln -s linux-2.6.9-11.EL linux
cd linux
make oldconfig
vi Makefile
^^ edit your EXTRAVERSION and take out the "custom", mine: "EXTRAVERSION = -11.EL"
make -j2 bzImage
