There are VMware 5 (Beta) XP & Linux versions.
check these screenshots http://www.vmware.com/products/desktop/ws5_screens.html
However, I had a problem with this Maybe you'll get it right
I tried to use both XP & Linux versions it seems like it wants to install a whatever Guest system from the scratch. I wasn't able to figure out how to point any of them to existing system. Anyways, it's still beta versions so don't expect much.

The linux kernel does not yet support writing to ntfs partitions. Thus, any mounted ntfs partitions must be mounted read-only.
