If you do try qemu try building it with kqemu support. qemu does full
emulation (which is needed for running an OS for a different platform).
kqemu allows some of the guest OS instructions to run directly on the
CPU, which is much faster.   kqemu is not as mature as qemu, and if it
doesn't works for you, you will find qemu much slower than vmware
