Hey,

There is a few out there for fbsd.. but the only one I have used with
success is qemu.

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/url.cgi?ports/emulators/qemu/pkg-descr

Its quite quick, but I feel it isn't as quick as vmware is/was.

But it is something to look at, if its just simple things you need from it
it will be fine, but anything CPU heavy I find its not great on.

Another one that you might want to look at is bochs
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/url.cgi?ports/emulators/bochs/pkg-descr

I cant really say much about this one, I've tried it before but never got
anywhere, so it might be good for what you need. Or it might be rubbish :)

Anyways gotta do some work :)
Bye. 
Grant.
