You can't under OS X but you can under Linux/PPC. Check out
MacOnLinux.org - its a piece of free software (GPL) that does
virtualization (a-la vmware - except its aparently much easier/saner on
PPC - I imagine thanks to IBM's input). You can display on X11,
framebuffer or (*drum-roll*) VNC. You can run multiple instances of OSX,
OS9 and Linux/PPC on a single machine.

I've found its performance is pretty good. I run Linux/PPC on my
iBook/800 since I found it too slow to run OSX decently. I keep OSX
runing on vt8 so I can watch strongbad flash movies.
