running windows with redhat


I've installed redhat 8.0 on my pc. It now has a dual boot with windows xp.
Redhat works fine but I would like to run windows in my linux. (I saw it on some screenshots)
I read sth of VMware to do this, but I have no idea how to begin...
Can I just run my xp (and all the software) in a window in redhat?

All tips are welcome,

Connectix *USED* to have virtualPC, where you used to be able to run Linux on Windoze and vice versa.

However, there is no more Linux support, because someone bought Connectix the other week. Guess what monopoly that claims their main focus is on innovation bought this other comapany and actually made the product less innovative...

If you said Microsoft, you get a prize! If you continue to use XP you're supporting this kind of immorality.
