Make sure you use a supported version. I am doing the same thing but, it
took about 3 distos to get it to load with out any extra work.

I've checked Redhat 9 and Knoppix 3.2 and 3.3, all of them work
under VMWare without further configuration. The only thing I'll
advice you to do is to install the X11 drivers shipped with the
iso that has VMWare for running Linux over Windows, the speed of
your screen will be much better.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
