Hello all,
    This isn't exactly an "on topic" question, but there are so many 
here so much wiser in the ways of Linux than I, I thought I'd ask.  In 
the Windows world, one can purchase and install MS Virtual PC (at no 
small price, I might add) which will allow the creation of Virtual 
computers within the Windows OS, which can even run Linux quite nicely.  
Is there a Linux (preferably free) alternative?  I know that Win4Lin is 
supposed to run Win9X fairly well, but is there a true virtual machine 
app. that will run Windows NT/2K/XP and give it access to the Linux 
machines hardware devices?
