I have two hard drives in my vista computer and have installed OSX86 on one of them. I want to rum vmware on the Mac side controlling the Windows i have installed on my other hard drive. Is there any way to do this?
If you need any specs tell me what you need and i will post them. I really need this because i am going to be going away to college and want to control my home computer (mac and vista) through screen sharing or VNC.

(also if any of you know a microsoft office 2008 torrent/download that works in SP1 please tell me)
THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm assuming you want to load xp with vmware inside os x.
You need to close vmware.
load terminal
type sudo fdisk -e /dev/rdiskX - where x is the disk number of which xp is on
type print -- look for an * next to your HFS partition find what number your xp partition is
type flag X -- XP partition
type write
say y
leave terminal open, goto vmware create new connection your connection should now show up. play around exit. go back to terminal

type flag X -- you osx partion
type write
say yes
reboot
