Just add this line to your /etc/fstab
   linproc         /compat/linux/proc      linprocfs rw            0       0
and run "mount /compat/linux/proc" (it will be mounted automatically the
next time you boot your machine).

Hmm, your first problem might be, that the vendor of vmware does not
sell licenses for version 2.x anymore. Maybe you should give v. 3 a try,
which has been added to the ports collection recently (but which I do
not have any experience with).

That was ports/emulators/linuxbase, the base of the linux ABI
compatibility layer.
