If I want to use Windows XP or Windows 7 on VMWare or similar virtualization software do I need to have CDs of those OSes or does the software provide access to them for testing purposes?

License for the OS not for virtualization.

Install Oracle VirtualBox and then install XP as if it is a real PC.
