If you are using VMplayer and you don't have a VMware tool to create virtual machine on your linux OS,you then can create the virtual machine online!It is absolutely cool web based apps.
Once you submit this form, you will be prompted to download a ZIP file containing a VMware config file (.vmx) and a VMware disk image (.vmdk). Uncompress the ZIP file and open the .vmx file using VMPlayer. The disk images are blank, you can now install your operating system of choice. NOTE: This application does not use any VMware applications or code. It uses QEMU to generate disk images.
