windows running at same time as linux
do you think it would be possible to install win98 using dosemu onto a linux partition and then use dosemu to execute the win.com file and start windows using dosemu as well?
i want to do this to be able to run games under linux. (and to impress my mates 8) :D )
Dosemu won't run Windows afaik, bochs will
To run Windows games in Linux the best bet is transgaming's Cedega (winex4).
You can run Windows inside of Linux, but gaming is not gonna be good in these:
VMWare: Commercial, Not that fast, great for develpoment of software, testing, basic apps. $250USD
Win4Lin: Commercial, Runs 95/98/Me at good speed, doesn't do games, great for office applications. $89USD
Bochs: Free, Slow, cool, good for testing some things, runs everytrhing I've thrown at it. There is a new version, haven't tried it, runs only in Linux, different name (can't think of it).
Wine: Free, can run many Windows apps, but not Windows itself.
Best for Gaming:
Transgaming: Commercial, runs hundreds of games at good speed. $5/per month, renewel not mandatory.
