You could run vmware, and install windows xp service pack 2. service pack 2 is used by most people in the windows 
world, they havent completely shifted to vista or windows 7. It's already running vulnerable services mostly on ports 
135,139, and 445 tcp. You just need the latest version of metasploit to test it. For analyzing malware there's a script 
in python called malware analyzer http://www.beenuarora.com/code/analyse_malware.py . But you will need the PE module 
from google code http://code.google.com/p/pefile in the same folder. The malware analyzer is amazingly good for 
analyzing botnet-binaries and viruses and such. You'll also need Olly Debug and IDA pro. Have two VMs ready, one 
windows for the victim, and linux, preferably backtrack for the attacker. That should about do. Oh, you could also have 
a Honeypot ready to catch exploits from the wild. you could have them separated from your normal network.
