	Not having used either, I don't really know. From glancing
briefly at the bochs web page, it looks like it does more in-software
emulation, which costs speed but gains portability over the
hook-into-the-local-kernel approach that vmware uses. Getting bochs
running on various NetBSD systems could be a nice project.
