VMWare is excellent if you plan to use the guest OS for testing purposes (test connectivity, test apps etc) however for general usage, Sun's VirtualBox is the answer. It's free and of course very simple to use. It doesnt contain all the complex features of VMWare but it does the job if you want to get your hands dirty on GT.M Linux.
