I am using VMWare v5

I created a VM, and I want to load RHEL onto it.

I know how to load RHEL from a CD, but how do I do this from disk

I have an ISO on disk, is there a way to have a virtual CD point to the ISO ?

Thanks

Two methods

you can use daemon tool lite free version , it will create virtual drive in your PC and icon will be at task bar nearby clock icon. You can mount any ISO or any other format image. After mouting Vmware will detect your virtaul drive.

Or

In Vmware Open VMware machine click on  VM --> Settings, you will see all components/hardware devices of your VM pc click dvd/cd drive , then you will see ,there will be option available within vmware to boot from ISO jsut below cd rom option
