Linux installation problem.

Okay I'm going to break it down simple here because I really need an answer here. I am frustrated and have looked over dozens of sites to try to figure this out. Hopefully someone can help. Anyways I downloaded the Backtrack 2.0 Final. Next I need to install this into VMware Workstation so I can use Backtrack. I opened a new workstation and browsed the backtrack ISO image into the new workstation and set everything up. This is where I'm confused because I know I'm not finished installing everything. I go as follows:

root, toor, startx. Then I go to KDE and go to the backtrack 2 installer. What do I do from there because it doesn't seem to be installing correctly. I know there are more steps but I'm clueless. Might I remind you that I am brand new to Linux and Vmware and any kind of DOS related, or command Prompt. Can somebody please enlighten me or direct me to an answer?
