I don't think UML is quite dead yet, as I think there was a presentation 
for it at UKUUG. Xen certainly is better in many respects (performance, 
security etc).

If you want an easy to setup emulator, I'd suggest QEMU which is 
effectively equivalent to VMWare (but not quite as pretty).

I've not setup Xen myself, but it took someone else here (at work) a day 
or so to do it (i think).
