"Go to http://www.centos.org and get the latest i386 based ISO image of CentOS 6 (CentOS-6.0-i386-minimal.iso). Although the usual recommended version for a modern server is x64 but as we are trying to create a small virtual machine the i386 will suffice for our purposes.

"Start up the VMware Virtual Player and create a new virtual machine with the following hardware parameters: name - virtual-proxy, hard disk - 8Gb. Press the "Customize the hardware" button and delete the floppy, USB controller, printer and sound card, set the amount of memory to 512Mb. Switch the network adapter from 'NAT' mode into 'Bridged'. Point the virtual CDROM to the ISO image that you have downloaded earlier and start the virtual machine.

"Follow the steps of the CentOS install wizard mostly accepting the defaults. Configure machine hostname as "proxy" and root password as "P@ssw0rd" (without quotation marks). Now wait a little until the installation is complete and then reboot the system."
