I agree 100% on the VMWare or VirtualBox suggestion - VirtualBox is free, 
and VMWare has VMWare-Server available for free (log into the localhost 
with the console and it's pretty similar to VMWare Workstation 5.x).

I use XEN at work for virtualizing servers as well as some test 
workstations that are hosted in the Datacenter on rack equipment, however 
for a virtualization solution on my workstation, I don't think XEN would 
be my first choice - although I do have XEN loaded in a CentOS and Fedora 
virtual that are living in VMWare-Server on my desktop here :-)
