There are modified versions of the vmware modules that let you run on
older/newer kernels (and contain other fixes).

DB> /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.16-2-686-smp

That's certainly older.  Generally vmware doesn't support older/newer
kernels and they're pretty specific on a particular kernel range for a
particular version.

google for vmware-any-any in a .cz TLD and try those modules.

(it's also linked from the wikipedia vmware entry)
