i routinely run windows and various linux distros in virtual machines on 
my intel macs (dual core macbook laptops and quad-core mac pro towers). 
at work all our development is on mac os x and we test our software 
deployment to gentoo vms. works perfectly.

we use parallels desktop ( for the mac. vmware fusion 
(equivalent to vmware workstation) is in beta for mac os x and offers 
similar features.

note that you cannot run vmware "on the metal" and virtualize your os x 
installation. the vm guests can only be windows or linux.
