    Do you mean virtualization??Do you mean that you want to run a Windows OS or application on your Linux machine?

    If you are looking for a Linux environment you could check out Cygwin.

    Cygwin Information and Installation

    I assume you are running a Linux script that requires this?

    Would a LiveCD such as Knoppix give you what you need? Just a temporary Linux environment to access some info?

    It's worth a shot. You'll have a fully functioning Linux desktop and you won't be actually installing anything to your drive. You mentioned needing Linux for something, but not wanting to change your computer's setup. This just seems like a decent idea to me.
