    I'm not exactly sure what you are wanting?

    After you have booted into an OS, you manually install VMware server, and then install Windows.

    You have triple boot: OSX, Windows, Ubuntu?

    In Ubuntu install VMware, and the install Windows from your original CD.

    The only way I know of is with a purchased VM program, like VMware Fusion or Parallels.

    I know of no free-ware VM that runs under Mac OS.
