if you use VMWare's desktop client or VMWare Player, you should not
need to reboot. If you use VMWare ESXi, you will need to have a
system you can install on (ESXi is an OS w/ hypervisor).
If you use Xen, you will need to be able to reboot and run the Xen
kernel. I'm not sure if you can just drop KVM in without a reboot.
I am also not sure about having to reboot or not using virtualbox or
any of the other virtualization tools out there.
Really, you're going to be in a bind if you can't get root access to
the machine, or get a machine that you can install/reboot on your own
for your project.
