This is the procedure I used to setup Oracle Enterprise Linux on VMWare. The first step is to create a New Virtual Machine
The Installation can be either a CD or ISO image on the hard drive. I have used both without any issues.
Select Linux and in this case Oracle Enterprise Linux
I used the default name for the machine and the default location
The suggested space in 20GB, I increased this to 25GB and also used the splitting feature
The summary is used and no changes were made
After this the Installation follow’s from Oracle Enterprise Logic, Ctrl + Alt releases the mouse cursor and either Ctrl + G within the window or simply clicking inside gives you access once again. I skipped the Media test but this can be done.
