I've followed this thread a bit and maybe you all can help me. I've
got a winxp partition that I have to boot into only occaisionally to
get some archived data from an old quickbooks file. Can I
use one of these solutions to do that? or am I better waiting for wine
to support quickbooks (not yet afaik).

performance is not an issue, just like to avoid reboots and then
printing or saving to a common partition and the like.
