Just to point out though, that the first query did seem like an
elementary one that could have easily been solved--the onus, in this
case, is probably on the OP, but at any rate....

Aha---have you tried the latest VMwareplayer?  It seems to be their
replacement for the old  VMwareserver.  It now enables you to install an
O/S, so these days, I'm recommending it over VMware server--like you
(and most people), I greatly dislike the 2.x way of doing things.  

There is also the lighter, and at this point, probably less feature-ful
VirtualBox, of course.  However, VMwareplayer, like the old VMware
server (that is, 1.x) allows you to install a wide variety of systems.

Also, as was said above, you can often find a prebuilt image.
