I just finished going through the time sync problem, and here's the info I

To configure CentOS w/o X installed, you still need to install the vmware
tools. Edit the vmx file for your guest, tools.syncTime="TRUE". In
grub.conf, add clock=pmtmr as a kernel option. You'll need to shutdown the
guest OS, reload the vmx file, then restart the system.
If you have X running, then you can use the vmware tools much like windows
to configure time sync with the host system.
