I installed VMWare player on vista and tried Ubuntu on it, I am quite happy with it, the built my dev env on it (Ruby, Rails, MySQL etc). Now i want to move to a dedicated machine, is it possible to create a iso file out from VMWare file, so that i can use the same to install? Or is some command available in Ubuntu for same?

Not quite. The basic premise is that you boot the virtual machine up with some disk imaging tool, image your disk, then deploy the image to the physical machine & deal with the driver issues.

VMWare has a detailed document on how to do it.
