Forget the server version, and even more, forget its version 1.

You can search our wiki for the articles on vmware.
Also, you can search our howto section in the forum.

I had really good luck using Oracle’s VirtualBox. Here is a thread where I asked about it. Read to the end for full details as it is working great now.

What VM do you recommend for openSUSE?

You can search the forum on VirtualBox as well and find lots of hits. Please_try_again has written a couple of scripts useful for use with VirtualBox. One can be used to reinstall the kernel modules when you update your kernel version and the othyer allows you to run a Linux LiveCD in a virtual session using only the ISO disk image and no need to make a boot disk. I do suggest you consider bulking up in memory and disk space depending on how you intend on using it., the more the better, but that is not required to check it out at all.

Thank You,
