How can I boot from an ISO without burning it with VMware Server?

i dont know about vmware-server but, in vmware workstation you can just edit the virtual machine settings and ask the the cdrom to use an iso, this can be done only after you add a virtual machine settings.(just the settings, like defining the space and all).

If you are going to boot from a image, try to use the full image (DVD IMAGE), because when you start to the installation you won't be able to switch between images.
