    Not sure there's anything free.  Virtual Box is free, but I'm not sure that it converts Virtual PC VMs.  I'd suggest going with either VMware Fusion or parallels.  Both are fine products that should convert over your VPC VM and are reasonably priced.

    For consumers, there are 2 commercial products used for Virtual machines on Mac OS X.  The first is Parallels, and the other is VMWare.  I have used Parallels, which is very good.  VMWare I have not personally used but it apparently supports Virtual PC ( .  Look under "Tools For Switching")  You can download a free trial to test, so I would advise doign this before purchasing.
