From the README:
An 1.5 branch kernel is strongly recommended. I have seen some
problems with -current kernels, like VMware panicing during win2000
installs, and during heavier disk access under Linux.
Note that the LKMs are compiled for the 1.5 branch. If you want to
use -current, you will need to recompile the LKMs from source
(don't forget to set the path to your kernel sources in the Makefiles),
and copy them to their place in the installed tree later.
