No (or at least, not yet). VMware does not emulate the new EFI required 
for MacOS X to boot.

As the owner of a new Intel Mac, I do support this request: I have 
Parallels Workstation on my Mac that allows me to run Windows XP and any 
flavour of Linux just like VMware does on my PC. This means a single 
machine can run MacOS + Windows + Linux.

Performance wise, an OS running in Parallels is about as fast on MacOS 
as VMware is on Windows. Obviously, you can get native performance by 
dual-booting into Windows using Boot Camp.

Obviously, you should be aware that you'll need a full copy of Windows 
XP with SP2 to install via Boot Camp.
