VMware Workstation 3.2
The New Virtual Machine Wizard guides you through the key steps for setting up a new virtual machine, helping you set various options and parameters. You can then use the Configuration Editor (Settings > Configuration Editor) if you need to make any changes to your virtual machine's setup.
A new virtual machine is like a physical computer with a blank hard disk. Before you can use it, you need to format the virtual disk and install an operating system. The operating system's installation program may handle the formatting step for you.
