You might also want to check out qemu[1], which is free and is in portage -- the main difference is a somewhat more spartanic user interface. Just remember to use the kernel module kqemu as well for adequate speed (somewhat less than vmware at the moment, but it is going to get to vmware levels pretty soon).
