don't know, what exactly vmware asks for in your case, but this might help you 
Depending on which SUSE version you have, there are different procedures 
preparing the kernel modules.

For example for version 9.2/9.3 you need to configure the kernel sources (they 
must be installed though and match the running kernel) with the help of the 
following commands:

cd /usr/src/linux
make cloneconfig
make prepare

Subsequently, run the VMware configuration script vmware-config.pl and follow 
its instructions.

For more information or help, you might want to take a look at the support 
database and search for vmware:
