Get XMAME and use it.
It's good to support the companies, but IMSHO if you do and then play the MAME version, you aren't hurting them...
NOTE: It is ILLEGAl TO USE ROMS YOU DON'T OWN, but IMSHO, if you support the company by purchasing their collections of such games, you don't hurt them, or anyone else by playing the "real thing."
And YES I have the PS2 version, it was a Christmas gift from my sweetie...
