Looking for something similar to VMWare


I'm looking for something similar to vmware (runs x86 architecture), but not off of an "image". For example, I have Windows 2000 on my /dev/hda1, and want to run that system (from that hard drive, not from an image). Is there any software out there to do this? I've looked at bochs, but it doesn't seem to be able to do this either.

Thanks in advanced,
Jon

nothing i am aware of will let you do that. you either run it as an image like vmware or you run one or the other with your dualboot.

WIn4lin doesn't does a similar thing, it allows you to run windows OS's off Linux.
