first you need to build you a .vmx file. Here is an easy way to do it.


After you build your file save it in your /home or wherever you would like and 
then use VMWare player to open it, then you should be on your way to 
installing a copy of Windows.

I may not be 100% correct here, since it's been a very long time since I had 
to do it myself, but I believe I have it dead on.

Anyone see anything I'm missing?
