Do you want Linux on Windoze, or Windoze on Linux?

WINE is a possible option for the former.

www.winehq.org

CoLinux is a possible option for the latter.

www.coliux.org

WINE uses the Windoze API's to emulate a Windoze base thus allowing Windoze based software to install under Linux.

Co-Operative Linux is a full Linux Distro running as a Windoze program. I currently have it running GenToo.

I hope that helps.

What about Qemu... Not sure how developement is going on it, but considerably faster than bochs.

If you just want some win apps on linux then WINE is another option.
