Dear,

Something like this to generate the iso:

OSCDIMG.EXE D:\ C:\Win2003.iso

Then mount the iso in vmware

You can use tools like MagicISO or PowerISO to create ISO from physical CD/DVD.

There's also free program which you can use CDBurner XP

I prefer to use ISO Recorder, it's small and free.
