Where are you stuck?
The basic process is:
Install VMWare on Windows.
Download a CentOS installation disk image.
Fire up VMWare and select the option to create a new virtual machine.
Select sensible values for the hard drive and RAM to be given to the machine.
Tell VMWAre to point the virtual machine's CDROM to the CentOS installer image you downloaded.
Start up the new virtual machine and go through the CentOS installation as normal.
Install any virtual machine client tools which might be available for VMWare (optional and I am not sure whether anything is provided as I haven't used VMWare in a long time.
Then you're done.

are you trying to install the 64bit version of CentOS or the 32? If its the 64bit it will never work as you do not have a 64bit host OS.

50G should be enough space for a barebones install and VMWare 10 does support that kernel so it should not give you fits. more details would be nice.

Yes, the 64 bit one would likely be called something like AMD64.

not a great idea

CentOS 6.4 is UNSUPPORTED
CentOS 6.5 is UNSUPPORTED

6.6 is the current and will become unsupported rather soon when 6.7 is released



make your life MUCH!!! EASIER!!! and install a supported version

CentOS 6.6 for the OLDER 6 series for running older code
you will want the 32 bit
http://mirror.rackspace.com/CentOS/6/isos/i386/
this is a OLD 32 bit maching ( had XP on it ??? )

6.6 might be way TOO NEW for a 3d card
for example :
i have a 14 / 15 year old computer with a Nvidia Gforce 2 card
6.6 DOSE NOT!!!! support that card -- NO 3D support !!!!!!!!!
so if you have a gforce 2,4 or 5 card
6.6 dose NOT support it


6.6 can but i have to hack the Operating system and mix parts of 6.3

you might have to use CentOS 5.11
http://mirror.rackspace.com/CentOS/5/isos/i386/
