Neither. You can use Bochs or QEMU which are both free and open source ;-)
But well, VMWare will work, too. As probably all others...

You can use the downloadable ISO (cdrom image) and load that as
a virtual cdrom into your preferred VM. Then boot from that and
follow the instructions to install DOS on your virtual harddisk.
