VMworkstation 5.5 locks up on openSUSE 10.2 and 10.3

I have found out that my VMworkstation locks up on me about every 5 minutes and nothing works.  Not only does the virtual machine lock up, but the WHOLE computer (host and all) locks up and nothing works (i.e. the mouse, keyboard, etc).  I have done some research and found out that if I add hpet=disable to my boot options on grub that my virtual machine and physical machine do not lock up anymore.  I am using a Dell Inspiron E1705, and if you have the same problem as I did.  Try this fix, it might work.

Happy New Year!
