Cannot run virtual machine inside an ESXi server running on VMware Workstation 6.5

I have installed VMware ESX Server 3i U4 Installable - Version 3.5 Update 4 on VMware Workstation 6.5 for testing purpose. The installation was successfull, but whenever I am trying to create a Vritual Mchine inside the ESXi Server, it is showing the following error:

"You may not power on a virtual machine in a virtual machine" and I am unable to run the virtual machine inside the ESXi server.

What is the reason for that? Is it possible to run the virtual machine inside the ESXi Server running on VMware Workstation?

arunraju - most probably you have not gone throuh my problem properly. I am not asking for how to run ESXi Server on VMware Workstation 6.5 (the link which you have given).

The reason why I updated that link was for you to check whether you had created the VM as per the config given in the link.
Most of the time, I had issues in running ESX 3.5 inside a VM since I had not modified the VMX file properly.
