EASYTRAX + SoftWindows.  With a PPC 200Mhz 604e, you can get some pretty 
serious emulation speed.  I've run Neil Bradley's Emu (classic arcade 
emulator) at speeds that weren't too far behind my Pentium 90.  That's a 
604e emulating a 68000 (in QuickDraw, at least) emulating a Pentium 
emulating an 8088 emulating a 6502.  Scary!
