OS/2 running under VMWare, or other emulator for Windoze

We use Virtual PC 4.2 or 4.3 from Connectix on Windows 2000 to run OS/2 Warp 4 for development and testing purposes. VMware does not support OS/2, and we've had better overall experience with VPC than VMware. The connectix support forums are good source of info: www.Connectix.com/support, go to the forums, Virtual PC for Windows.

  BOCHS won't even start on my Win2K laptop. Blows immediately with illegal opcodes.

  Oh well.... moving on......

    Will BOCHS run on that version of windows? You may have a chance with
    that too -- I've heard that it would boot OS/2, but that's second hand
