Qemu is what you are looking for. Qemu + DSL (Damn Small Linux) is perfect match.
Cygwin is what you want. Cygwin is exactly what you need.
However, there are tons of liveCD to help you if you can boot from the CD. Knoppix is the leading one.

Curious---what exactly IS their policy? Will they allow dual boot?

At my work (NASA/JPL), they support Linux (RHEL4) on machines that they supply. It is also not that hard to get your own machine and install anything you want---as long as you comply with security requirements.

One mission of the Linux early adopters should be education of IT departments---admittedly sometimes an uphill battle. I will never forget the interchange I had in the early days of the internet. I asked them how to get a connection. The answer was that I did not NEED a connection!!! Trying to tell them that that was not for them to say of course had no effect. Finally, I found a VAX something that was connected and I got a dial-up account to that machine. After learning a bit of VMS, I was now on the net. Those were the days......
