windows Emulation


Well I occasionally need to use windows becuase I use visio and other windows specifics which dont seem to be known to work (or work fully) with wine. I cant afford crossover office so i decided i will use emulation. I wanted to ask do i get the windows desktop. Also I need help starting becuase this is my first virtual machine setup and so i dont have a clue. I can use bochs or qemu. Dont know which is better? I already have xp pro SP1 on my IDE HDD is possible to just get kemu to run windows off that?

Definitly qemu - I'd think it's safe to say it's about
100x faster than bochs.

And VMWare is 1000x times faster than qemu, at least last time I tried it.

It wasn't a year ago, and still isn't. Not even by factor 10.

However, if he can't afford cxoffice he won't go and buy
VMware, which is 9 times as dear as CrossOver ;)


Cheers,
Tink

Well i sort of can afford crossover office it's just it's a bit expensive considering it's not the only method i have to get my windows apps working. Quemu is free!!!

I installed kemu using yum so installtion directory may be different as i found out from another post. it used the source instead of rpm. The directory it used wasn't on my system.

yeah so how do I set it up could u please help the documentation tells me nothing really or maybe it's just me being dumb. I want to set it up with xp pro on fedora core 3. Please help I really do need it as am sick of dual booting. I'r rather have a virtual machine despite it isn't as good running windows as a virtual machine. Please pretty please
