after you click the 'Apply' button in the pop-up window that appears after you click the 'Standard MBR' button,

That is an “OK”. So I should have said the sequence is

View MBR

Still, it's pretty simple. 5 quick clicks.

I saw a small checkbox for "Clear Boot Sector".

It’s up to you. I usually clear the boot sector it but if you leave the checkbox not ticked you can undelete the partition if you later realize you made a mistake. “Undelete” appears in the Actions column on the right side of Partition Work when you select the Free Space where the partition used to reside. If you create a new partition after deleting the old partition, the old boot sector is overwritten and the old partition can’t be undeleted.

I see 3 Ubuntu 8.10 virtual machines at VMWare:

http://www.vmware.com/appliances/directory/57922 (512 MB RAM, 637 MB)

http://www.vmware.com/appliances/directory/54735 (512 MB RAM, 893 MB, TuxDistro)

http://www.vmware.com/appliances/directory/55429 (only 320 MB memory, so I think this would be least favorite. I think MB RAM is only tweakable if I have the Workstation version of VMWare, right?)

Can Magoo/somebody tell me which would be best?

As I mentioned in the other thread, VirtualBox is probably better.  You get to set up the virtual machine yourself and tweak the amount of memory anytime the virtual machine isn't running. 

It also gives you access to the physical CD drive and physical USB devices (although USB can be buggy in my exp.)  There is also a Remote Desktop type features where you can access your virtual hosts from another machine.  I've never had use for that, but it could come in handy.
