Which client? I've never seen this. It would be a great feature though.
You should be able to hold (or hit continuously) shift or ctrl key during boot to make grub/lilo appear. The boot cd option should also work. You can try a way to mount the image file (not sure it is possible because of the proprietary vmdk format though) - look for the lomount command.
