Try VirtualBox. It's more or less the same as VMware, but different.

VMware Server (free)
Xen (free)
Qemu (free)

And probably many others..

VirtualBox works very well. You might also consider qemu.

Virtualbox is based on qemu, and it adds some nice features. I don't think Xen will work with windows.

+1 on virtualbox
It works better for me than VMware... but VMware is good too.

Don't forget to install the guest-additions. When you have xp running click on: Devices - Install guest additions in the drop-down menu. That will enable you to resize windows and use it without it capturing the mouse.

You should be able to edit the shared folders without starting the virtual machine. Just select the winxp virtual machine, click on settings, go to shared folders, and edit/delete the shared folder there. Booting the machine should work next time.

edit: or, from the command line:
Code:
VBoxManage sharedfolder remove <vm_name> -name <shared_directory_name>
Replace the <..> bits as necessary.

Xen can virtualize Windows as long as you CPU supports the VMX extension and your BIOS doesn't disable it.

Far out! Apparently it is possible now, but it doesn't look like too many people are using it.
