    The samba config file should be /etc/samba/smb.conf. You'll need root privileges to edit it, but the standard file is very well commented and can lead you through the configuration with little outside help.

    The configuration docs for CentOS are put together really well. The samba docs for the distribution can be found here: CentOS Samba Docs.

    It may seem like I'm sidestepping the issue a little, but Samba is huge and very flexible - and the documentation for it is good. You really are better off having a go at getting to the configuration you want, then asking us specific questions. There is no way I can write an easy config guide here that would be better than the official docs.

    It doesn't cover how to set up the networking on the VMWare install so that connections to the virtual machine can be made - that'll be down to your VMWare configuration. But once the VM is up, the software running on it will not know if it's running on a real machine or a virtual one. So it's exactly the same.
