Win4Lin is a virtual machine with somewhat less capability at this
point than VMware.  It will only run 95 and 98.  I had a number of
hiccups getting it installed in potato, but once it was working, I
find it is more convenient to use than VMware.  Applications seem to
run a bit faster for me than under VMware, as well.
