Use the option of letting the vmware drive file auto-resize as needed,  
so start small.

In case you find the 160 becomes too small...
On my laptop I am doing a lot of video work, so I replaced the 160 Gb  
5400 rpm with a 500 Gb 7200 rpm.  Very easy to do.  Bought the drive  
for $110, and did the switch myself in 15 minutes.  The youtube video  
shows how.
