Not sure if this will be of any help. But you can set your Boot loader in your VM-Client.
Go to the properties of your VM --> options
Set your boot options.

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.

Well it's called VMware Infrastructure Client 2.5

I use it with my ESX server to control the VM's. Guess it probably comes with it. Not sure though, it was already there when I started working here. But I must say it can certainly be very useful.
