VMWare Server is free - as is Virtual PC.

Im quite familiar with both (I prefer VMWare). Ill be more than happy to 
help create and maintain such projects around the image.

The problem with VMWare I posted just recently, it boots and I get to a 
white screen with a black x which responds to mouse movement, but nothing 
ever goes beyond this.

Is there any more information I might be able to glean from it for you?
