Questions about running vmware workstation from the command line

I have an instance of Ubuntu 10  that is running on a dedicated server through a service provider and it is only accessible remotely through a command line interface. I want to run a vmware virtual machine using workstation on that server. A couple of questions:

A) Is what I want to do even possible and should I just switch my dedicated server to windows?

B) Is what I want to do possible but will be a huge pain and I should still just switch to windows?

C) Has anyone done this and how has it worked for you?

if you can find the vdmk file on the remote server you should be able to copy that into yout virtual machines folder in my docs but I would copy all the files where the vdmk file is as there will be a few files

what is the commandline you use on the remote server
