I should have put this in my previous reply, sorry.

If you want the free VMware virtualization software for desktop  
virtualization (meaning runs under a host OS so you don't have to  
give up a whole computer like you would with ESX server) you want  
VMware Player.


Sure you can't create or clone your own VMs, but you can download  
hundreds of pre-configured, pre-built "virtual appliances" (including  
most of the major distros in just about any configuration you can  
imagine) for free from here:

Additionally, many of the how-tos here will also have an attached  
virtual appliance for download.
