It should work fine and will install the same way you install any operating system in VMware Workstation.

Start a New Machine: File, New Virtual Machine. Choose Custom, not Typical and work through the selections.

Of note:

1. I always use one Disk and make the initial pick big enough (at least 100 GB).
2. Choose your install media:  ISO if you have an installation file;  CD if you have the Server media on DVD and if you have a DVD device on the host.

It is all fairly easy to do.

So then start the install with Disk One, proceed and when it wants the next disk it will say.

Sure that makes sense but it wont load using disk 1 of 4 either as physical or by ISO.

You're having some connection problem to the CD drive?  If the VM is POST-ing but not starting off the CD-ROM or ISO, then go check the properties of the VM and the CD-ROM will need to have the check-boxes for Connected and "Connect On Startup" checked.  Try that and report back.  

If it still doesn't work, send screen shots so we can see what its doing.

Thx
