Install Ubuntu Netbook Remix in VMWare

I like playing with different distributions of Linux, and am pretty curious about distributions that are geared towards netbooks.  I was curious about checking out the latest version of Ubuntu Netbook Remix, but I wanted to check it out in VMWare Workstation before actually installing it on my netbook.  Unfortunately, the installer is intended to be copied to a USB thumb drive and installed from there.  This doesn't work in VMWare.

This page has instructions on how to install UNR in a virtual machine.  These instructions create a disc image that can be mounted our burned to disc.
