I've recently experimented briefly with all three of these programs and 
wrote a blog post about it:

It is possible that some of the issues I ran into could be worked out (I 
didn't spend very long with any of the programs), and your mileage may 

How you create the image will depend on which application you are using 
(qemu-img for qemu, VBoxManage for VirtualBox, or the vmware gui for 
VMware.  VirtualBox also has a gui, but it is qt-based).
