PhoneGap requires you have the following software installed:

1. Eclipse Integrated Design Environment (IDE), a program to write code and manage software development

2. Java Development Kit (JDK), the Java compiler and support tools

3. The Android Software Development Kit (SDK), base code and emulators for developing Android apps

4. Android Development Toolkit (ADT), a plug-in for Eclipse that makes Android development seamless

5. Apache Ant, a program that automates software build processes (similar to 'make')

6. Ruby, a programming language

7. Git Bash, an alternative command program for Windows environments (Windows only)

Follow the step from

You dont need to install any special or particular operating system in your computer.

Because PhoneGap is an HTML5 app platform that allows you to author native applications with web technologies and get access to APIs and app stores.

Like if you want to develop ASP.NET website , will you install any operating system? No !

Develop apps on the same OS you have.

Step 1 : Install virtual Box 3.2 

Step 2 : Install PalmOS on virtual Hard Drive you Created in Virtual Box 

Step 3 : Define Shared Folder Between Virtual OS and Host OS so do it in Virtual box to make shared folder put all that 
  Java Setup Etc in to that shared folder so that u can access all those on Virtual OS .

Step 4: Done !
