I want to install Apple OS X on a virtual machine. My computer is somewhat old. I have Intel Pentium M 725 processor that have support for SSE2 instruction set but have no support for PAE. Is there anyway to install OS X on it? I mean is PAE required in the processor to run a virtualized OS X using VirtualBox, VMWare or any other solution?

The EULA of OS X only allows for installation on Apple hardware; not directly, or through a virtual machine, on a PC.
EDIT:It appears that with Apple will allow you to run up to 2 virtual machines on Lion, provided the host machine is running Mac OS on a Mac computer. (although I'm unsure how this works as you need snow leopard in order to upgrade to lion and legally you can't run snow leopard in a virtual machine)
