Any ideas on how to do this?  Basically it would be great if we could run Mac OS on a virtual machine under Microsoft Windows.

You can not legally run Mac OS X on anything other than Apple hardware. So yes you can load Windows on a MacBook and them run Mac OS X inside a VM on top of that, but you can't run it in a VM on your Dell.

This cannot be discussed on EE because it breachs of the Apple EULA. So I cannot provide you any help in achieving your goals.

You can only run Mac OS X on Mac hardware as per the EULA.
