    For Sources for VM, If you want to know how the VM mechanism is implemented then You have to look into Kernel code.
    Because the Hyperviser is inbuilt in to the kernel. This is responsible for VM.
    To use virtual machines your hardware
    1) should support "PAE" a feature in your CPU.
    2) It is better to have multicore CPU or Multiple CPU on your MOther board, But it is not mandatory.
    3) You should have enough RAM The more is better.

    as you said you want it on linux , You first boot your system up.
    1) from command prompt "cat /proc/cpuinfo"
    see the CPU flags for PAE if it is there then you are ready for VM
    2) even from above output you can see how many number of CPUs present
    3) for amount of RAM issue "cat /proc/meminfo" it will show you how much Physical ram installed on your system

    Now check your kernel by "uname -r" if the displayed string has a PAE then consider it has already have VM support enabled.
    Now use UBUNTU's package manager to install VM group.

    Now you are ready. you can now create VMs and manage them.

    Hope this helps.
