I am running VMware player on CentOS 5.4 and its working fine. However it does not allow me to increase the RAM more than 3GB.
I’d say, use virtualbox instead of vmware player.
What is you host amount of memory?
What is your guest type?
What VMware version of VM are trying to create?

Check this VMware article and see if you fall within the limitations described:
Virtual machine memory limits and hardware versions (1014006)
Host has 128GB RAM and its running CentOS 5.4 64 bit architect,
to know hardware version you can use this table:

Thanks for your comments. Finally figured out the way. Upgrading VMwaretools did the trick.
