    Should be possible, technically speaking.
    I was actually planning on messing around with DosBox this weekend to see if I could get Windows 95 or a small Linux distro working.

    No real reason... just to see if it can.

    I would really love if someone did a port of vMac to honeycomb. Then I could run classic Mac OS on Android and explode some iPad fanboy heads.

    Anyways, I would look up how to install Windows on DosBox and then try to transfer those instructions to something that would work on the Android version of DosBox (there are actually a couple).

    Will post back here with instructions if I get it working first.

    But DosBox is pretty much your only hope at the moment since it's the only working and available x86 emulator for android... unfortunately, it's not Honeycomb optimized. One tip to note, you will definitely need a USB keyboard to use it as the on-screen keyboard will cover the bottom half of your DOS console and make it so that you can't actually see anything... it's workable, but really annoying
