Aside from running a second, separate X server, you can run a
traditional multihead configuration (without Xinerama), so that your
monitors will have DISPLAY numbers :x.0 and :x.1 (x probably being
0). Then you can run a regular X window manager on the other display
and only the vmware process on the other (be sure to give appropriate
parameters to the program so that it starts maximized). Cursor and
focus moves transparently between the displays, and clipboard also
works (if, of course, vmware supports that on hosted Windows). Oh,
and you'll need XFree86 4.x for this, with supported card(s).
Acceleration should work as usual.
'course, the approach with two X servers would be more suitable
if you wish to have two consoles, one running Linux and one Windows.
However, I get the feeling that you want to control them both nicely
from one keyboard and mouse, and this should let you do just that.
