Plex86 boots Windows95!

Plex86 just announced that it can now boot windows 95. No packages yet, but grab your CVS copy of the code and start hacking!

Plex86 is a GPL'd piece of software that allows other OSes to run as guests on a host OS, similar to how VMware works. Plex86 is being sponsored by Mandrakesoft.

Plex86 can now boot MSDOS, FreeDOS, Linux, and Windows 95
