VMware is run on my Intel iMac (Leopard/Snow Leopard) which hosts Windows XP and Centos Linux. What format should be used on the LaCie drive to accommodate the different OS's?

If your XP/Linux VMs are stored as 'disk images' on your Intel iMac, rather than as separate partitions, your LaCie should be GUID partitioned and formatted as HFS+ (Mac OS Extended (Journaled), usually).

When you copy with SD, make sure VMWare is not running.
