yes vmware server is free. I'm running it in a large corporate environment with many windows servers running on a linux vmware machine - it works very well. vmware images will work on windows and linux vmware hosts, you can just copy them back and forth.

As you have Centos 5 in your tags, you already have open source virtualization called Xen.  See previous links.
