[lug] Windows emulator

Hey David, long time since I have talked to you. Now, as far as I know, wine
requires exsiting windows libraries (dlls) to be on your machine. I would
assume that these are dependant on the x86 (Or possibly Alpha in the case of
NT) platform. Therefore, emulating windows on a sparc machine is probably
impossible. As far as vmware, It requires a x86 class processor. Vmware
comes only in a binary version.  I don't know if it would be possible for
them to port it to a Sparc platform, as I don't know the specifics of how it
emulates the PC.
