I would like to try out VMWare fusion as its isnt expensive but I could do with a bit of help from you guys please.
I want to use it with an install of latest Ubuntu and Im not sure if this will work or indeed how to go about it? I was going to use Windows XP but could use Windows 7 if needed.
Really, any help will be good
Re: A new boy wanting to try virtualisation
What, specifically, is your question?
Perhaps if you tell us your hostOS and the clientOS(es) you intend to run?
I thought Fusion was only for OSX hosts. I could be wrong. It is commercial.
Normally, if you want to run a desktop clientOS with Ubuntu Desktop as the hostOS, VirtualBox would be the recommendation here. VBox is F/LOSS and in the Ubuntu repos.

Try VirtualBox, it works well and is Free/Open Source Software (as long as Oracle lets it be).
It can do both 32-bit and 64-bit, but if you want to try ARM, PPC, MIPS or Sparc then you'll have to try Qemu as VirtualBox is limited to x86.
