Actualy with VMWARE you can run whole OS as programm and even NT with its own fs. And even more - you can play windows games! with sound and all drivers.
And if you close window of windows9x next time you boot your computer from win partition - windows will run scandisk becouse they`ll tink YOU shutdowned computer via reset of OFF button:-).
Doh thats lots of fun - just have enough RAM.
download it from here:

There are two ways you can try to do this:
1 - FREE - use WINE (www.winehq.org).
2 - Commercial programs like VMWARE(www.vmware.com)
