Where can I find an Ubuntu Server ISO to use (convert to a VM) in VMware Player?

From Ubuntu's website, of course. :-) You don't need a special VMWare only ISO.

I recently installed the 12.04 server (using Virtualbox, though) to check it out, and found Ubuntu's server documentation which is a great step-by-step guide to installing things like LAMP apps, wiki (wikimedia, as used by Wikipedia), etc. – Marty Fried May 31 '12 at 17:41

You can get the Ubuntu server virtual images from VMware's repository for images here:

You can search for the image you want in the search box to the left. However, if you are looking for the generic ISO for ubuntu server, follow reverendj1's answer.
