Wouldn't be possible to port NTVDM from XP to Vista? Or maybe from ReactOS - I don't know how far they are but it's opensource. I'm afraid of it, NT/2K/XP emulation was not so good but still usable. Now it's end of DOS era under windows. Only way is emulator or realdos. But realdow will have problem with future HW I guess... :((

BTW there's nice VESA emulation software - a part of dgVoodoo glide wrapper for NT/2K/XP. It's based od VDD extension to NTVDM which allows you to emulate VESA VBE drawing via DirectX in a window or fullscreen. It's pretty fast! You can play blood, duke, sw... together with VDMSound, faster than via DOSBox.

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
