The biggest problem with JNOS on Windows is that there's no easy and 
good connectivity between JNOS and the Windows system - like we get with 
Maiko's TUN0 or a virtual tty on Linux.   All the other virtual drivers 
have issues.  The only real solution is a second hardware network card 
and that defeats my idea of a clean and simple virtual machine that can 
be cut and pasted between systems.   VMware or Virtual PC may both work 
but that depends on how the networking and serial ports are handled.

I would love to hear if anybody has tried and had success with a JNOS on 
Linux on windows under either VMware or VPC...
