I'm not sure what you want to do, so...

...I assume you want to install a Linux guest in a VMware Workstation running on Vista!?

You'll find what you need here:

If you try to install VMware Workstation for Linux (the application itself) on Vista this won't work, as you need the VMare Workstation for Windows version.
