You might want to start here:


VMPlayer is only to "play" or run prebuilt machines. If you're planning 
to actually install the machine(s), then you'll need to use the VMware 
Server so that you can create/edit machines.

Careful with your memory though...meaning don't allocate too much to 
your VM's. You'll find all the help and docs you need at VMWare. They 
have RPM's that are easily installed on CentOS.
