I created a new Virtual Machine on ESXi 3.5 U4 "Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop."  The Ubuntu ISO image resides on the client box's CD/DVD drive.  I can't find on the VMware Infrastructure Client an option to "copy" or "install" the Ubuntu operating system to the new VM.

How do I copy/install the Ubuntu operating system to the new VM?
