Would Bochs be the solution here? There really isn't a need for these
applications to run "fast." They're basically programs that just have a
whole bunch of forms. Frankly, running them on a 1+ GHz machine is sort
of a waste in any case. Since Bochs provides excellent x86 emulation and
dispenses with the issues associated with Wine, I would think this would
be a great solution. I have never tried it, though, so I don't have a
clue.
