Well, I spent the afternoon trying to get Bochs to work. Unfortunately, the networking is just broken in both packet socket and tuntap mode. The problem is someplace odd in the code and I don't feel active enough to hunt it down - I found an easy bug, but that wasn't enough.
So, kissing the feet of the statue of RMS that I keep in the corner and asking for forgiveness, I install VMWare. And what did the wonders of commercial software manage? "Cannot allocate memory" (VM is setup for 32 megs and I have > 350M free).
I'll see if I can dig up an old box tomorrow.
