I assume you are talking about VMWare server? They have different products. Well I would start by reading the installation section of the VMWare server manual.

We'd like to help you, but statements like "it says **** like invalid or cant find or your stupid..." are absolutely no help.

Try reading this: http://catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html and when you're done come back here and post exact names of files you installed, exact versions of the software and cut-n-paste the exact commands you're running and the exact error messages.

Are you seeing a theme? Exactness is a good thing, being vague... not so much.
