Your post was very painful to read, as you don't seem to use of the shift key, have incredibly poor spelling, and randomly replace words with numbers, such as "2" instead of "to".
You'd have to check with VMware about installing the nVidia driver, I don't use VMware. You can always use the "nv" driver that comes with X. It doesn't have 3d acceleration or some of the nVidia specific stuff like TwinView, but otherwise works fine.
