I downloaded the latest kernel 3.2. used this link to build a custom kernel
enbled SCSI low-level drivers from the left side and VMware PCSCSI drivers support from the right side.
built the new kernel and it worked like charm
just to note that this command does not work anymore “[FONT=Courier New]make bzImage”. just writing make will fix the bzImage in case you need to update the wiki[/FONT]
