Hello everyone,
I am interested in a computer emulator which allows to create virtual computers inside my gentoo computer. I need it to install RHEL 5 (CentOS 5) as guest systems with Oracle 10g and 11g for testing and prepearing for certification. What does better work on Gentoo - WMware-server or VirtualBox?

Why not kvm ? I have kvm running both Centos 5.3 and WinXP at the same time (Please don't ridicule me for running XP, I have to for for work purposes :( )
This link (gentoo-wiki.com) might be interesting.

Oh, I forgot to add that that it has the added benefit of being free! (gnu.org)

Coz you have to pay for it! I would suggest KVM as well, as long as you have a VT/SVM enabled CPU. Otherwise, for just on virtualized system VirtualBox would be the better choice then VMWare Server.
