Which VMware product?

With VMware Player (and probably also VMware Workstation), you just select "Create a New Virtual Machine", then Installer disc image file you select the Linux iso file. On the next option you select "Linux", and then Red Hat Enterprise Linux. After that you give it a name and the location where you want to store the VM. After that you set the max virtual disk size, and select "Split into multiple files". After that you can customize the virtual hardware. I usually change the network adapter from the default "NAT" to "Bridged" mode, as that way the VM will have access to the other PC's on the LAN, and those PC's also have access to the VM. In NAT mode you can only access the internet from the VM.

After that the installation proceeds like it does with the normal Linux installation on real hardware. When the installation has finished also install the VMware Tools in the VM.
