You can use Microsoft's Virtual Server or VMWare.
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/virtualserver/
http://www.vmware.com/products/server/
Both of these are free, VMWare has some higher end products that would cost money.

To add on you can create a VM from a dedicated machine very easily.  Once you make this a VM I would make sure to change the SID on the second VM since it will have the same as the first machine
