I've been playing around some more and I now, too, have a working vmware
5.5.1 (not patches needed). I wasnt following the howto closely enough,
so i missed the part about installing ia32-libs. I did that and now the
GUI works fine. thanks for the hints. (previously i futzed around with a
chroot myself but vmware didnt like that).

Sidenote: I had to go for sid since etch is currently broken (python)
and i'm too  adventuresome to use sarge.
