VMWare is a good enough tool, that you would experience a few VMWare related issues rather than not experiencing Linux.
You might also be interested in trying the Knoppix run Linux from CD.
Good Luck.

Flickflum, click on the "Knoppix" link in the middle of the paragraph.

As far as VMWare, I have run many Linux distros on virtual machines and quite like doing things this way (since I tend to like to try out almost every one out there).

Flickflum, you may also want to check out Morphix, another cd based distro that is also Debian based to see if Linux is to your liking. Once you download the iso and burn to cd, set your bios to boot first from cdrom, drop Morphix in the tray and hang on!
