How do you get an emulator to work?


First I tried WINE (it is so an emulator!) (WINdows Emulator) (and I don't care what they say)
It will not work. I want to run quicken so I type wine quicken (until the HD dies I think I'll use quicken)and sometimes it says that it cannot find the configuaration file. Other times it fails with a status of 1.
Then I heard of bochs. From what I have read about it and what little I've seen of it it seems to pretend to be the M$ OS itself.
I really want this one to work but its screen appears and popup windows pop up stating:
Failed to open plex86 device
&
ata0/0 cannot have zero cylinders, heads, or sectors/tracks
&
ata0-0: could not open hard drive image file '/home/bmike1/.bochs/guest.hd0'
&
Could not open 'dev/lp0' to write parport1 output
&
BIOS panic at rombios.c, lin 1558
&
BIOS panic at rombios.c, lin 7715

and the emulator has displayed on its screen in the final state of things:

Yeah! WINE stands for "WINE is NOT an emulator"!! A recursive definition in pure hackerish style. Like GNU is...

And btw, if you have wine works correctly, it's the best software around...
