Do you mean the "VirtualPC" which is a specific Microsoft product for  
running Windows or other OSes on a PPC Mac, or do you mean a virtual  
machine in general, which would include several products for  
virtualizing PC hardware?

I've not tried any such method but you will probably get more  
meaningful responses if you are more specific as to what you mean.

I suspect such an endeavor is futile, as the speed penalty of  
virtualization is extreme and there are often problems with specific  
hardware drivers, but you never know.
