Yes, the Sun VirtualBox software works very well. The newest 3.0 builds have the added support of 3-D enabled graphics support...so you can how have fancier graphics in the virtual machine.
Of all of the free virtualization packages, for home use I tend to like VirtualBox the best. Second would be VMWare Server. I use VMWare pretty much exclusively at work..but that is to maintain the best compatibility between our VMWare Server, ESX and ESXi hosts. I feel that both VMWare Server and VirtualBox have FAR BETTER support for Linux guests...which I probably use more than anything else.
While I have had all 3 products (VMware Server, Virtual PC 2007 and Virtual Box) installed on the same host computer at one time....I've also experienced some strange and complicated network issues that only resolved themselves after uninstalling all 3 and settling on 1. This was on my work laptop...so the product I settled on there was VMWare Server 2.0.
