Which virtualization did you have in mind? VMWare? VirtualBox? Some other? On what platform? Linux host, Windows guest? Windows host, Linux guest?

Let's say you have a Linux host and wish to install VirtualBox. You would go to the VirtualBox web site (, click the Downloads link, click the VirtualBox 3.x.x for Linux hosts link, scan down the list and identify your Linux distribution (if it's not there, you would use (All distributions), select either i386 (if you have a 32-bit system) or AMD64 (if you have a 64-bit system), wait for it to download and then execute the downloaded file; e.g.,
sh                           your file name may vary
It would probably be useful to read the instructions that appear below the download choices and even more to read the End User Docs which contain How-To's that provide a guide to installation as well as adding virtual machines.

Installation on a Windows platform is roughly equivalent -- download, install, add virtual machines.

Hope this helps some.
