Fedora 15 VM takes forever to start-up after VM Tools installation

I just installed VM Tools on my Fedora 15 VM and now the system takes several minutes to start-up and I have no idea why. The start-up had been pretty quick before I installed VM Tools.

I'm a bit of a Linux newb so I don't even know where to begin looking. This is the only problem that came up during the VM Tools install:

Detected Xorg X server version 1.10.4.

Distribution provided drivers for Xorg X server are used.

Skipping X configuration because X drivers are not included.

Creating a new initrd boot image for the kernel.

vmtools wasnt supported on Fedora, only RHEL etc.

You might want to uninstall it or use a supported distro.
