Well, Fedora itself currently only supports KVM (which requires hardware
virtualization) and plain QEMU (pure software emulation, extremely slow),
but there are several options you can try:
* kqemu: available in RPM Fusion Free
* VirtualBox OSE: available in RPM Fusion Free
* VirtualBox (proprietary, not recommended - but see OSE above)
* VMWare (proprietary, not recommended)

There's also Xen being worked on for F12:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/XenPvopsDom0 and with preliminary
RPMs at http://fedorapeople.org/~myoung/dom0/ , but AFAIK Xen does not
support Window$ guests unless you have hardware virtualization.
