I downloaded the latest version of VMWare (again), uninstalled the old 
version and installed the new, along with a patch, which I found by 
googling "vmware server ubuntu 9.10". I should have documented my steps 
and put into the build wiki.
I'm trying to dig back through my steps, but an behind an incredibly 
poor hotel internet connection and can't squeeze enough bandwidth to 
find the web pages.
I think it was explained on this page: 

You will probably need to do something similar.

Although, I suggest that you would probably do better to start with 
building the click2try image if you can get it working.
