i doubt you will find any images, but there are articles available on the web which guide you through step-by-step in creating a SQL 2005/2008 cluster using VMware Workstation... i have done this in the past, should not take more than a day or 2 to get this working.

TIP: if your cluster OS is gonna be 2003 then you would use SCSI shared disks by altering the workstation VM configuration (as described in some online articles)
or if the OS is 2008 then you would use an open source NAS software to create iSCSI volumes that can be used by the Failover clustering feature.

this should get you going:

once the OS cluster is set up... installing SQL 2005/2008 cluster should be pretty straightforward.
