VMware virtual machines can boot from an ISO image file, so there is no need to have a physical CDROM drive.

Goto the vm settings and you will find the cdrom options.

Right, but... on Linux, the kernel is easily re-installed or updated even without it, from HD. I don't remember where to read about it, but it wasn't a problem at all when I needed it.
