Hi
I do not know of any unix emulators (only Unix OS -- Solaris Linux etc) which run on PC.
However there are lots of UNIX utilities around which run in Win95/Win98 and NT, if these may be of any help
    here are some URLs to check out.

        GNU Utilities collection ---

UNIX (and friends) is a multi-user OS, while Win x.x is single-user OS. So you may amulate Win on UNIX but never UNIX on Win.
