Installing CentOS 5 on VMware Player (Windows 7)

Installing an operating system as a Virtual Machine sometimes is not as trivial as it seems. In this post I am explaining how to install CentOS 5 on the latest VMware Player, which is provided free, on Windows 7. This procedure may also be adapted for other Linux distributions such as Ubuntu or Mint. I will try to explain it in a way so that not so experienced users can follow too.
