Install VMware Server 2 in Ubuntu 10.10

First entry for new year - 2011.
Now, i try install Ubuntu. And i have one idea: Install VMware Server in one computer, and use VMware client to connect to server :)).
Now, i assign static IP for server, is 192.168.1.33/24.
Next, download Vmware Server. My OS is Ubuntu 10.10
Link: http://www.vmware.com/products/server/
Register one free account and you will download it. Chose Vmware Server for Linux OS, type (.gz).
Install some compoment:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential xinetd
Then, download script: http://radu.cotescu.com/how-to-install-vmware-server-ubuntu-fedora-opensuse/
wget --no-check-certificate http://codebin.cotescu.com/vmware/vmware-server-2.0.x-kernel-2.6.3x-install.sh
Note file: vmware-server-2.0.x-kernel-2.6.3x-install.sh
 tar xvfz vmware-server-2.0.x-kernel-2.6.3x-install.sh 
You will have folder: raducotescu-vmware-server-linux-*
mv VMware-server-*.tar.gz raducotescu-vmware-server-linux-2.6.3x-kernel-71f8b66/

sudo ./vmware-server-2.0.x-kernel-2.6.3x-install.sh
In install process, you can Enter to next, but notice:

 The current administrative user for VMware Server is ''. Would you like to specify a different administrator? [no] <--  yes
Please specify the user whom you wish to be the VMware Server administrator <--your account to login
And
 Please enter your 20-character serial number? <--Your serial number 
If finish, you can go to: http://localhost:8222 or https:localhost:8333 to login adminstrator web. Create Datastore ( if need), and Virtual Machine.
If you use Ubuntu 10.10, default web browse is Firefox 3.6.x. You can`t connect to virtual computer. Because VM remote plugin error with 3.6.x. You can using FF 3.5.x.
But, i like using VM client, don`t want use web access.
First: download add-on:
cd /tmp
wget –no-check-certificate https://localhost/ui/plugin/vmware-vmrc-linux-x86.xpi

if in other computer, change localhost to server IP

mkdir -p bin/vmwareconsole
cd bin/vmwareconsole
unzip /tmp/vmware-vmrc-linux-x86.zip
cd /bin
ln -s /tmp/bin/vmwareconsole/plugins/vmware-vmrc vm-console

Now, you start: vm-console
Host: ServerIP:8333
Finish Lab.
