To run any Windows software under Linux, you'll need some sort of emulator. There's really 1 of 4 options(that I know of, maybe more)...
-Free, but getting some things to work under it can be problematic.
- Again, Free, it more or less will simulate an entire operating system inside of Linux, then you install your Simulator there, and see how it goes. I've never been able to get it to work, it always freezes during the install of XP, but YMMV.

-More or less a commercial version of Wine. It works perfectly for the few windows programs I use, so I can't complain. For $40, and not having to mess with some of the probs I had with Wine, its fine with me. Like Wine though, it can be hit or miss with programs that will work for it.
- I have no experience at all with this.. sorry.
