Separate user is enough if you don't have world writable files in your
system. And of course user for such purpose shouldn't be in group(s) that
have write access to your personal or system files.
If you are unsure use VirtualBox ( http://virtualbox.org/ ) - it's free and
open-source, or VMWare ( http://vmware.com/ ) - it's not free.
On Debian (and probably Ubuntu) you can install VirtualBox by running "sudo
apt-get install virtualbox".
I do not recommend to use QEmu because it's less user friendly than
VirtualBox (BTW, VirtualBox is based on QEmu).
