To do what?

If the files are sitting in your host OS, Windows, and you have a Linux VM running, you need the installation files in a folder that can be seen by the Linux VM.

You can either share a Windows folder and mount it in the VM
Copy the files from Windows into the Linux VM and install from there.

You need to unzip/untar/??? those files in a folder that can be seen by the linux running in vmware.

I suggest you just copy the files in the the VMWare linux machine and unzip them in there.
