Hi Richard,

Do you have a specific need for VMware (ie, existing Virtual Machines 
you want to run)?  Or do you just want to create/run virtual machines 
from scratch? 

If the latter applies, I can highly recommend Virtualbox.  
(http://www.virtualbox.org/).  I have found virtualbox easier to install 
and to work with when compared to vmware.
