It'd be interesting to get EROS running under bochs, because that just went open-source. However, the last time I tried it, I wasn't able to get it compiled. Also, network card support (NE2000) under bochs isn't complete.
I have VMware 2.0, and I was able to boot and run the ztstflop image under it. This was on a RedHat 6.2 system.
Of course, the LANCE Ethernet chipset that VMware emulates isn't supported. The driver seems to be a fairly straight-forward one, using DMA to transfer data to/from the card. Of course, I'll need to read more of the EROS source to see how easy it might be to port the driver.
