As Bill said, the
page shows how to boot the Live CD image (iso) using VMware. VMware currently
is the most mature of all the virtualization applications.

Regarding your concern about speed, I only find the booting process a
little bit slower (I
think is something between VMware and Fedora, because other distros
boot faster (Arch) ). After that, I cannot feel much of a difference.
I have used a 1.2 Ghz computer (Celeron) with 512MB, so you can see
that it is not very demanding and could be faster in newer machines.

??? I think it might be worth your while to read and understand

That is exactly what Alfredo has done using VMware. VMware is not
open source but it is free.

I don't see any reason why one could not do something very similar
with Xen.
