OSNews, Generic OSes The open source Bochs, VMware Workstation by VMware, Inc. and VirtualPC from Connectix are applications that virtualize or emulate the x86 hardware, allowing you to run multiple operating systems on top of a "host" operating system that these three applications run upon. This means that you will be able to run Linux or FreeBSD or other supported "guest" OSes under Windows, Linux (or Macintosh), inside a window or fullscreen. But which one delivers the best performance for the money? And what about the free Bochs?

Sorry. It wasn't VMWare 3.5, it was VMWare 3.1 BETA, which is "older" than what you tested, most likely, since it's no longer in BETA.

BTW: How to get BeOS RUNNING in VM 3.1... Select "Other" as the guest OS, then make sure that "Enable RAW Access" is checked under CD-ROM/DVD-ROM options. It worked perfectly for me, just booting & installing directly from my R5 Pro CD!!
