    So I have OS X and Vista installed via Boot Camp.

    Within XP, when I launch VMWare and try to load Vista, it basically hangs right after the VMWare boot screen.

    Any suggestions/reasons as to why this would happen?
    I also have a virtual XP machine running under VMWare, which works smooth as silk.

    Thanks!

    Is VMware meant to work with Vista Bootcamp partitions?

    Good question.
    I'm under the assumption that it does, but if someone could confirm/deny this, that'd be great.

    Yes, VMware fusion does support Boot Camp partitions.
    It also supports Vista Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate (From the WMware website).

    EDIT: Forgot to add that you have to re-authorize Vista everytime you access it with VMware Fusion. Nasty!
