You are not providing very much information for us to go on. A basic "it doesn't work" comment isn't a diagnostic message, method, or other helpful starting point. Try to follow the procedure detailed in [url="http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2011162"]this VMware KB article[/url] describing exactly how to install Fedora 16. If the installation fails using that procedure at least report [i]where[/i] it failed. Your specific version of VMware might be helpful too.

if you are using VMware, why does that matter? the client OS wouldn't know what the host card was

You need to upgrade VMware to 9.02 to install fedora 18.
