Unable to execute vmware-config.pl again

Hi
I am installing VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.i386 on FC 12

Have an error when executing vmware-config.pl initially. When I try again it has the message:-

----------------- start of messages ------------------------------
The following VMware kernel modules have been found on your system that were
not installed by the VMware Installer. Please remove them then run this
installer again.

vmmemctl
vmci
vmxnet
vmhgfs
vmblock

I.e. - 'rm /lib/modules/2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.i686/misc/<ModuleName>.{o,ko}'

Execution aborted.
----------------------------------------end of message ----------

I tried remove them using modprobe e.g.

modprobe -r -v vmemctl
the response was "WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/anaconda, it will be ignored in a future release."

Subsequently I tried vmware-config.pl, but have the same error.

Please help.
Thanks in advance

Hav you tried the suggested command?

Code:
rm /lib/modules/2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.i686/misc/<ModuleName>.{o,ko}

Bad method smurfit. You really don't want to delete the modules, you want to prevent them from loading.

You can probably accomplish the goal by editing the text files in /etc/modprobe.d and commenting out the offending modules.
You can certainly do it by blacklisting the modules using the same directory.
