Hello Folks,

The Emulation debugging technologies that i was talking about at the 
meeting are free to download at the following links


QEMU is a generic and open source processor emulator which achieves a 
good emulation speed by using dynamic translation.

QEMU has two operating modes:

    * *Full system emulation*. In this mode, QEMU emulates a full system
      (for example a PC), including a processor and various
      peripherials. It can be used to launch different Operating Systems
      without rebooting the PC or to debug system code.
    * *User mode emulation* (Linux host only). In this mode, QEMU can
      launch Linux processes compiled for one CPU on another CPU.

An optional proprietary QEMU Accelerator Module 
<http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/qemu-accel.html> is available to 
optimize the case where a PC is emulated on a PC. This module enables 
QEMU to run most of the target application code directly on the host 
processor to achieve near native performance.

The supported host and target CPUs are listed in the status page 
<http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/status.html>. For full system 
emulation, the supported Operating Systems are listed here 



   Bochs is a highly portable open source IA-32 (x86) PC emulator 
written in C++, that runs on most popular platforms. It includes 
emulation of the Intel x86 CPU, common I/O devices, and a custom BIOS. 
Currently, Bochs can be compiled to emulate a 386, 486, Pentium, Pentium 
Pro or AMD64 CPU, including optional MMX, SSE, SSE2 and 3DNow! instructions.


Good Day, Good Luck, Good ... whatever else.
