You can view a quick video of the installation process at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8NKjiamBfU

~~~~~~~~Notes~~~~~~~~~~
Open Vm Workstation
Choose New Virtual Machine,
Choose "Typical"
Choose the .iso file you downloaded for the "installer disk image" file.
Choose Linux for the OS type, and Debian 5 for the version.
Choose at least an 8GB Disk, You will need at least 6 for the OS partition, and another partition for swap.
After you hit the Finish button it should power up the VM and boot up the Live CD.

-login to Matriux
-su to root (or open the root terminal window)
-run gparted
- Go to the "Device" option and choose "Create new partition table", default options are fine.
- Go to the "Partition" option and choose "New", keep default filesystem type of ext2. Create a new partion but leave space for a swap partition.
- Go to the "Partition" option and choose "New", choose Linux-Swap filesystem type.
- Go to the "Edit" option in gparted and choose "apply all operations"
- Quit gparted. You should now have an ext2 partition and and linux-swap partition.
- run the following 2 commands.
- mkdir /mnt/matriux
- mount -t ext2 /dev/sda1 /mnt/matriux

Run the Matriux Disk Installer, choose "Yes"
Step 1 - "Chose the Partition for the installation"  Choose the /mnt/matriux Mount point and hit "OK"
When it asks you if you want to install Grub, choose "Yes", choose the /dev/sda device to install.
Enter the name and login ID for your personal account.
Enter your password.
enter the root password.
Choose your local language and interface choice. "en_US" for most US English speakers.
You will be prompted for confirmation, then it will install the system.
Once done you can boot on the new system.

* Note, I had to install Grub to get it to boot after installation, not sure why yet, but it may not be necessary.
