Can you please be clear where are you trying to install CentOS?
Is there any OS running before?
Where did you install VMware?

No--NOT urgent.

Please give more details:
What is on the system?
Does the LiveCD boot up?
If so, did you run the installer?

The live CD cannot be installed to HDD.
You need the DVD.
