I am running vmware server 2.0.2 on windows 2008 r2. I can create the virtual machine but do not know how to install the OS on the virtual machine. I have a usb drive that has all the iso files for different OS, that usb drive is also a datastore when vmware server was install. I did not have to create the datastore. I want to  point the iso file location to install the os but it does not let me browse to that folder. Please show me how i can install the OS for the virtual machine.
