Hi Mark (and everybody on this very dynamic list!),

You could use VMWare server (which is free) and download a pre-installed 


I use VMWare since a couple of years and it has been invaluable for me.  
It's a great software for testing. 

Hats off to mOnOwall & pfSense!  I have boxes running around the world 
and i'm very satisfied!
