Hi
1) I don't have experience with emulation.
2) I think FreeBSD can run dos applications by dos emulations. For the
MS-Windows 95-98 emulation, it's in development and I don't think you
should rely on this.
3) Yes you can have more that one OS on the same hard disk and you need
to "multi-boot" them. When you will turn on your computer, you will see
a small message like:
F1: Windows
F2: FreeBSD
And press F1 or F2..
