seems odd that samba is required.
Have you mounted the NTFS drive in linux first?
From there should be able to create the shares in VMWare manager / control center as if they were like any other linux directory.
The linux layer takes care of the FS differences, it's just another directory.

Using virtualbox (on linux) I create the shares for the windows hosts in the VB manager (i.e. not within the guests themselves).
Having done that I boot the guest and the shares are automgically there (already mounted as shared drives - I didn't have to do a thing within the guest.)
Didn't need samba at all, virtualbox has it's own methods.
