    I second Virtualbox. I'm not sure I'd use the term "best" here, but it's the most fully featured free utility, and works well.

    Essentially, it is like having a complete and separate computer within your computer.

    Parallels Workstation 6: shareware

    lets you simultaneously run multiple OS configurations at the same time on Windows and Linux PCs, without rebooting.

    Virtual Linux can be a bootable cd so when you boot on it you have a Linux desktop plus included utilities and access to internet.

    you have to be sure that when you run a virtual system within windows your processor is capable with virtualization technology nad if it is enabled in BIOS. Parallels Workstation 6 will ask that.
