Free Virtual Machine Software?
I'm currently running Windows XP Home SP2. I am about to install Fedora Core 2, as well as Mac OS X Tiger. I am curious, are there any free Virtual PC programs out there that I can run on Windows that will let be boot Linux, and Mac under it? Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I dunno where else to ask it. I figure there are lots of Linux users that run Virtual machines running Windows and linux. Maybe one of those guys would know.

The place is OK, the forum is wrong ;)

Is there another one for running Linux under Windows, besides QEMU? Reason I want to run everything under Windows is. I'm am, unfortunatly, a native Windows user. Thus, I would be more comfortable emulating these other OSes UNDER Windows and learn about them through Windows' version of FireFox. Plus, I'd be able to work more efficiently by doing so.

but qemu will let you emulate linux under windows as you could see from the screenshots here :

Yea, it's got me confused though. Under QEMU how would I boot Linux from my J: drive? It's my 3rd hard drive.

You have to read the qemu docu mate ... you don't natively
install and run under quemu, you create a hdd image, and
install and run Linux (or whatever) from there.

Is that the only way? Surely theres some way to run it without an image. If not QEMU, can anything else do it that way?
