are there any free virtual machines to run windows xp/vista on os x (leopard)?
something similar to vmware fusion or parallels, except free.
i am looking at VirtualBox and Bochs but i was wondering if any one here had suggestions.

I am using VirtualBox and XP Pro SP2 with no problems so far.

Second Virtualbox, very good for free.
Will only get better with "Sun'" backing it now.

Bootcamp, pre installed on our macs. Haven't tried it yet, but i believe it's free. Ya?

Yeah bootcamp is preinstalled with leopard, however he wants to run a virtual machine (IE windows at the same time as os x). Bootcamp allows you to run windows on the mac, just not at the same time.
