I just joined, so excuse the delay but it seems like you are using 3.0+ which has a PAE requirement for your processor:
Best bet, may be to see if you can find an older copy of VMWare player or try a different machine with a compatible processor.
In computing, Physical Address Extension (PAE) is a feature to allow x86 processors to access a physical address space (including random access memory and memory mapped devices) larger than 4 gigabytes.
First implemented in the Intel Pentium Pro in 1995
Sorry but if you have a processor that does not support PAE you should probably toss it and get something made this century.
If the error is actually correct.
I have used a /PAE switch in windows boot configuration. Don't know anything about Ubuntu.
