Interesting concept, I'm trying it now.

Edit - Can't seem to get it work on XP. The console appears for a second then dissapears instantly.

I just use VMWare and VirtualPC. They're both effective PC emulators, but VMWare is a bit faster and less compatible than VirtualPC. I'd rather use VMWare/VirtualPC than screw around with trying to run the Linux kernel as ring 0 code.

The other issue is how does it handle talking to devices such as parallel/serial/USB ports?
