When I try to install quest ESX 4.0 Server 64 bit  (vrtual)  and on processor setting set number of processors 1 and number of cores per processor 4 then I take the following message:

"Powering on the virtual machine will fail because it is configured to use more virtual processor cores than the host supports"

    I checked the official guide, for centos 32/64bit only 5.0, 5.1 & 5.2 is supported as the host OS
    Not sure if this is the cause of your problem
