Just download the VMWare server beta. I did mine on a Windows machine. I
then created a virtual machine using my licensed Windows XP. I installed
VMWare player on my fc5 machine, and you'll also need to run this:
http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/vmware-any-any-update101.tar.gz

I then copied the Virtual Machine over to my linux box and opened it
with vmplayer. I did have to massage some settings in the vmx file to
get usb, sound, and the cdrom to work. I just googled for that
information. 

HTH,
James
