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.

If the problem persists than I will file a bug with VMWare. Thanks. Dotan Cohen http://lyricslist.com/lyrics/lyrics/13/402/pink_floyd/animals.html http://what-is-what.com/what_is/google.html
