Code:
egrep '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo
If you don't see any output, your CPU(s) has no hardware support for virtualisation.

But you haven't said what you want to do with it. If you just want to run some OS images under Linux, maybe check out QEMU. You can find a simple guide to using it here.

Both AMD and Intel processors has virtual hardware instructions but motherboard chipsets do not support virtual hardware instructions. Look for processors that have AMD-V or IVT. Video card manufactures do not yet have support for virtual hardware instructions. You will only get partial virtual hardware support.

I suggest use Xen as your virtual machine because it provides better performance, but the lack of features that VMware provides.

QEMU is not a virtual machine. It is basically an emulator.

The BIOS can only enable or disable virtual technology that is included in the processor. If the BIOS does not have virtual technology setting, I think by default that virtual technology is enabled by the processor.

Motherboard chipsets do not yet have this feature.

FYI, it is ASUS not AUSUS.

BTW, virtual technology is in its first stage. I think by third stage, virtual technology will be several times better and well supported.
