Check the folder permissions in VMware. Make sure the folder is set to read/write. Then copy the file on the Linux box with cp. If that doesn't work, there is a great program called winscp. It gives you a GUI for transferring files between the systems. You may have to install or enable ssh on the Linux box first.
