Well.... Sure, if you are asking for a completed product, VMWARE would be a good choice.
However... I have had no real difficulty building and running Plex86, such as it is, on a Red Hat 8.0 machine with the proper stuff installed right off the Red Hat install media..  I have had to install some "extra" stuff on my boxes but ALL of it was on the media from Red Hat, so if you "install everything" you should be just fine.
The only thing that does not build on an "out of the box" system is the documentation, but that is easily solved by adding a symbolic link.  When you get to the point of building the documentation, let me know what the reported error is and I'll tell you how to fix it.  Right now it just slips my mind what utility it was that required this (Openjade perhaps?).  Seems Red Hat changed release versions of it and the install directory changed because of it.  My solution was to add a symbolic link to the new version so it can be referenced by the older's name.
Like others have said, this is very much ALPHA code and it is not currently easy to setup and use.  It also does not function properly in a lot of cases.  This is frustrating and this project suffers from a deplorable lack of documentation both user and developer level.  Hopefully this will be fixed soon so we can get some folks to help us fix the open issues.

Ok if I can summarize this:

If you can't help with development, go and buy a copy of VMWare.

Plex86 doesn't have an install script for RH because:
1) it is ALPHA software, and I don't want to put up with
people who can't figure out how to compile and run in-place
a binary--since those people are also the ones whom will not
be able to help in the development efforts for a while yet
(I know this from experience);
2) I don't run RH, so therefore I have no way of making a
working install script for RH anyway.

Also, if you don't know how to use insmod, for the moment
you won't be able to help in the project.  That is something
that I'm working on making note of in
documentation--whenever I shall have the time to actually
get my xml processing skills up-to-date and fix things.
