As Ernest already said earlier, player is the way to go if you already
have pre-built virtual machines to use.  However, server is much more
flexible than player and is the better choice if one of your goals is
learning the installation process of multiple OS's.  That being said,
VMware has a wonderful appliance repository filled with pre-built
virtual machines for free download that should work with VMware
player.  It's an awesome resource:
