sure! you can use VMware for installing any windows and unix/linux OS. But i think it's for beginning. When you get acquainted with it, you should install dual boot

I confirm that VirtualBox is very good VM software. I use both linux host and windows host versions and I've never had any problems.

As tieuquaybk said a Virtual Machine it's a great tool for getting acquainted with different linux distro versions (www.distrowatch.com for all of them) ... you can see which is more appropriate for you ... But the greatest disadvantage is when you are trying to run complex applications ... you will surely need lots of free memory ... and even if you have sufficient you may still realize that it isn't running smoothly. best of luck . :D

Re: virtual machine

VM is great because you eliminate the need and time loss to reboot, and can run diferent OS in the same time.
I prefer VM on Linux or FreeBSD and WinXP inside VM, with controlled/no internet access to Win. This way Windows runs securely inside *nix OS, though a bit slow.
*nix is a very stable and secure environment, and makes work more secure.

Xen is based on qemu? I used qemu standalone on Linux, it doesn't have full virtualization, but is fun to use.
