Nate, when you say window emulator, could you be a little more specific? I kind of get what you mean, but I don't want to take a guess and be wrong.

I am not really sure about this but I think lindows, the precurser to Linspire, was designed so that windows apps. can run on linux. So I am pretty sure that Linspire can run windows apps. But, I am not sure.

For installation in dual boot with Linspire and windows:
That requires PBM. THere are other ways to do it.
Here's the way they do it at linspire:
About windows emulators:
You could try that for several windows apps.
I've used crossover office and it works nearly as well as in windows. And they keep releasing newer versions. I wished it were free, but then if it were free, the development might have stopped ages ago.
WineX is a great product put out by transgamers. It allows you to play quite a few windows games in Linux, that otherwise wouldn't be supported:
Take a look at the link above for a database of games supported.
Hope that helps.
