Bochs is a program that is kind of like virtualbox, but it lets you run x86 operating systems under ARM. It works on iPhone (Damn Small Linux works pretty well on it), so would we be able to get it to work under the raspi? http://bochs.sourceforge.net/
I know it\'s a long shot, but it would be cool.

I think Bochs could be compiled on arm without large problem, but it will run very very very slow.
It will be such slow that it won\'t be usable in any way. Probably you could install on it some simple console Linux or MS DOS.
