What I have found works well is to have dual partitions, the windows or NT on
FAT32 to start and then the ext2 partition.

You can run VMware from the first partition straight from the disk using linux
or using LILO you can boot into M$.

This also allows you to mount the first partition in Linux so that you can have
simultaneos access to the same data.
