I've had something like this recently, more than once, as well as other vmware 
related nonsense (dll error running flash mx 2004 pro in W98 guest, anyone?) 
and I discovered I had to upgrade rtc after any makeworld / kernel, then 
reinstall vmware3. If I _don't_ do that I get panics, crashes, hangs and all 
sorts, and if I _do_, everything works fine... so I recommend giving it a go.
