Because Fedora 16 came with new kernel 3.1.x. So you must patch your kernel to enable run VMWare WorkStation and VMWare Player (version 8).
This link is useful after you install.
Just download file http://weltall.heliohost.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/vmware8linux31fix.tar.gz , extract and run as root user
[root@duong Downloads]# ./patch-modules_3.1.0.sh
