Otherwise, you can still use something like OpenVZ. A quick install guide can be found at http://openvz.org/Quick_installation. It works a little different from KVM and VMWare, in that you just share the server's kernel in their own little sandboxes, say. This means you cannot install something like Windows, as it doesn't use a Linux kernel.

And of course there's always OVH's Public Cloud, if you just need something for a few hours...
I have a SP10 Mini Reloaded so cant look on the site to see if it shud have it enabled etc

For KVM, you first need to ensure you have a standard kernel (not the one provided by OVH), preferably 64-bits, and that your CPU has support for virtualization (and also enabled).

Here's a quick guide if you're using Ubuntu (similar on Debian, with the exception of the VM builder): https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM/Installation

There are a number of other guides around for KVM on other Linux flavour. As it is supported by "libvirt", you'll also find many different front-ends for it, including GUIs for the desktop or web apps.
hey, thanks for the response

after looking at that link, my cpu is saying it doesn't support hardware virtualisation...
this mean i cant do it then?

I currently have a dedi server with parallels plesk panel installed onto the server.
im wondering if it is possible to install vmware software ALONGSIDE the parallels software so i can still keep my websites etc running and seperate
but also have a virtual machine available and just give it a dedicated IP address??
if so HOW? since i have never done anything like this before!!
