I've gotten it to work before. From a hazy memory all I had to do was
select RedHat 4 as a system type, and run the installer in text mode.

The VMWare forums have a ton of good information, did you try searching
there? http://communities.vmware.com/index.jspa

Oh and check the premade images VMWare offers. They call them
appliances, but they are just premade images.
