Well, in the spirit of Free and Open Software... ;-)  And since I used it 
for my Virtual m0n0wall Development Environment...  (Shameless plug 
http://www.hosted.net.nz/VMDE/ )  How about Qemu? (And the QEmu x86 
virtualization module if you are running on a x86 platform)  QEMU is open 
source, and should compile on most Unix, and does emulation of the x86 
processor.  The QEmu x86 virtualization module is also open source, and if 
you have a x86 processor you can skip x86 emulation.  I have been using it a 
while, and it is quite stable.  However, time does seem to "slip" after a 
while.
