Do you have dkms installed and trying to build a new vmware module or
I think that it is installed, based on the amount of finds from "locate dkms".

Try to disable the vmware service from starting and see if you can
boot then.  Do this as root to disable vmware from starting:

chkconfig vmware off

After you can boot into the new kernel, try running the vmware config
program and let it build new modules (or attempt to, the process may
fail and that'd be a separate issue).
Interestingly, I just now booted into 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 and it started
just fine. Even the VMWare service started, and I had not run the
update script.

Not with the fedora bugzilla unless the problem happens when vmware
isn't in the mix. :)
If the problem persists than I will file a bug with VMWare. Thanks.
