You'd probably have to use VM software that could open a hardware drive (or BIOS partition*) as a drive for the guest, and then export the partition on a NFS or Samba share. I've not played with VMs on my Mac, but I'd be very surprised some didn't have that option.
*I have to say it like that, because the *BSDs use a definition of partition similar to Solaris, and this reduces ambiguity as to which I'm referring.
