There are VMware keys on Google, but that doesn't make it free. Player is free but I can't use it as it's awkward so instead I use Workstation. I use it because you can change BIOS settings, but I use VirtualBox more often as it has a bit of better support.

VMware Player doesn't have as much functions as Virtualbox (no snapshots or cloning, for example), but it is faster. So if you have to go the freeware route this is something to consider.

Basically in my honest opinion:

VirtualBox for all Windows NT based operating systems.

VMWare for all Windows 9x based operating systems.

As Windows 9x based operating systems sadly doesn't work properly on VirtualBox Guest Additions Drivers, believe me, I already have tried.
