I'm running 4.0_BETA2 for i386 under VMWare on a Windows XP based
laptop with no major issues, but it's not too speedy.
I sometimes test stuff with gxemul, it runs a whole bunch of different
CPUs and hardware under emulation. But it's usually not perfect. I
mostly only use it for booting hpcmips kernels to see if they work,
and it's about 90% reliable for that.
