Please explain the setup, we have no idea what kind of system you're working with. I'm basically taking stabs in the dark based off of passing comments you're making, and you're neither confirming nor denying any of the assumptions I'm making, or answering any of our questions.
Please let me know everything else you want to know. You are right i did not provide you with enough info

In that case you'll need to look at the VMWare player documentation on booting from a CD/DVD or ISO. I found this with a quick search:

http://communities.vmware.com/thread/326866

You'll need to catch it in the BIOS, before Grub loads.

you should check online (for whatever virtualization program you're using) on how to get to the boot menu (NOT boot loader!)
tell me more about it after you find out
