Bochs is quite capable of booting just about anything.  The nice thing about it is you can 'edit' the CPU and have it print out what it's doing for hard-to-debug stuff.

Just put your CD in your /dev/cdrom drive, then put these lines in .bochsrc

ata0-slave: type=cdrom, path=/dev/cdrom, status=inserted
boot: cdrom

Or you could put the image in a file and use that filename instead of /dev/cdrom
