    I was just searching the net to find out if it is possible to run Mac OS X on a PC. ]

    I found this link where it says that PearPC could be helpful. However, this article is very old and I am not sure if PearPC can be used to emulate Leopard or SnowLeopard on a PC.

    Are there any other tools which can help in creating VM for Mac OS X?

    Please suggest.

    the pear pc is an emulator to allow PowerPc stuff to run on Intel. Since both leopard and Snow Leopard run under Intel anyway, the PearPc stuff would be useless. Google Hackintosh for more info

    AFAIK there's no virtualization software for running an OSX virtual machine, but as noted above, you can get some PC's to load and run OSX. Be prepared for a wide variety of minor hassles and compromises, but it's possible.

    Also, be aware that running OSX on non-Apple hardware violates the EULA.
