I've never used any VM ware, however I have seen a similar thing happen
when I was first learning to create bootable cds. In my case, I had
selected a 686 processor in the kernel's config, but tried to run it on
a 586-compatible pc. Grub would load, the kernel would decompress, and
then promptly reboot the pc. So, it seems, as you said, that you have
the wrong processor selected in the kernel. I'd suggest setting it to
686-compatible processor, and try it again.
