lucky for you vmware comes with samba, re run vmware-config.pl it
should prompt to "allow guest systems access to host filesystem",
tell it yes. when installing vmware tools it will prompt to disable
password encryption on the win32 virtual machine, say yes.

i haven't tried it, but it should work, this feature has been there
since 2.0

(vmware 3 user too)
