Why don't you try the all-mighty Xen for this? You could also try
VirtualBox or VMWare... I don't know. It seems fairly easy to test some
fedora installation in read-only mode with these tools.

I'd suggest to make a fedora 7 installation on one of these and then try
to upgrade it to fedora 8.

There are also some techniques to "import" your hd image to these pieces
of art... err.... software!

# VMWare
Google it!
