In specific, the XP Mode might enable you to run old software on a new computer. And there's MyOldPC, which is supposed to allow you to virtualize an old PC fairly easily ( but that I have not tried ).

I have a couple of software packages from Win3.11 days running on a VM from these guys.

It's well worth looking at VirtualBox. It just works - and lets you run Windows on a Linux box or vice versa. You can even do things like running MSDOS under Linux. There is obviously some slowdown, but for many purposes this is a really useful tool.

I've had good experiences with V.Box also. It just keeps getting better.
