I'd say go for the single machine. You pay your RAC tax up front.  

I'm basing this on Michael Erwin's RAC Presentations and my own experience.

I agree with Mark you should do it on two machines if you have them  

In addition to Mark

   You learn how to load balance, set up different services on the machines, the VIP set up is different, etc.  

VMware is ok but it poses it's own challenges and a what you think maybe a Rac issue might be a vmware issue.  

my 2.5 cents worth.

Using earlier releases of OPS/RAC some individuals have actually managed to get two OPS instances running on the same Windows machine. I do not think the undertaking is worth the effort.  

I am not sure I would want to bother with VM either if the money for two cheap machines could be found or better yet if two existing machines could be claimed for the task.  

The only value in a single machine RAC system is as a study platform since the failure of the machine would affect both instances.

Using this installation guide: You can install oracle RAC using two virtual machines with vmware server.
