The most important thing wrt virtualization is, as far as I understand,
whether the CPU supports it: if it doesn't you still can virtualize,
but it will be slow.

Assuming your hardware is X86-based, Wikipedia [1] has a pretty good
explanation of the things involved.

See for example this [2] on how to find out whether your hardware
supports virtualization.

Of course, having some RAM helps a lot.

Cheers
