If the disk image format is compatible with KVM, you could run them under Kvm
with the -display curses option, which will give you output to a terminal and
allow you to interact with the guest systems.

You might have to convert the image format to one that Qemu/KVM reads, such as
qcow2 or raw. You also need a CPU with virtualization support included.
