VMware Workstation with raw disk in F12



I'm trying to work with a dual-boot machine, with VMware Workstation 7,
Fedora 12 as the host, and WinXP as the guest.  

When I define the VM and select the raw disk, VMware configures the disk
as SCSI, even though the hardware is SATA.  I changed the .vmdk file to
make the disk IDE and set the geometry appropriately, but it still
doesn't work.  ISTR that there are also some changes needed to the .vmx
file, but I can't seem to find any reference to it when I google.  I
have an old configuration (that was working before I made some changes
to the disk partitions) that I've tried to extract changes from, but the
new version is different enough that I can't tell exactly what I need.

Any hints or sources?

Thanks.
