It's not on the list of supported Linux OSes but you might still give it a go. See http://www.microsoft.com/technet/virtualserver/downloads/linuxguestsupport.mspx for more info

I have a box running Fedora 6 that is running VMWare Workstation just fine...  There's only one catch with installing VMWare on Fedora--there's a problem in VMWare's installer where it looks for installed items that are there, but it doesn't find them properly.  This causes VMWare's networking module to fail.  There is a patch that you need to run to allow VMWare's networking module (vmnet) to install properly.  the Google Groups vmkernelnewbies has info and the tarball containing the patch in question:

I'd say that it's unfortunately not possible at the moment then, sorry.
