Upgrading Ubuntu and Vmware

I’m looking for the best way to upgrade my Ubuntu 7.10 desktop with Vmware Server to the latest version.  I’ll try to update this post with what I find out and try.

I’m currently running the AMD64 flavor of Ubuntu 7.10 and Vmware Server 1.04 that I hand installed because there were no packages available when I upgraded to Ubuntu 7.10.

Update: Installing Vmware server 1.05 and the any-any-patch116 was pretty painless.

Update: I had to re-run the vmware-config routine after the update to the 2.6.24-17 kernel.
