    I know this sounds crazy, but I want to run VMWare Workstation on my Windows 7 VM running on Fusion 3. I have read several how to guides on the web discussing how to enable ESX but it's very cryptic. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....!

    Never mind. I found a solution that works.

    - Install Fusion
    - Install Windows 7 VM
    - Install VMWare Workstation on Windows 7 VM
    - Follow these steps to modify the Host VM .vmx file

    I am now able to run BSD/Linux VM's inside my Windows environment for the test environment I was trying to build.

    FYI, if anyone else ever needs to try something similar.
