I have just been playing with Bochs over the last 2 days (on/off).
It's much improved over the older versions.

There is an rpm which will install bochs and it will run the
supplied Linux OS without further configuration.

There are several "Disk Images with Pre-installed Systems" available
on the website.

The /proc/cpuinfo for the Debian emulation reports 1MHz on my
AMD 1.4GHz machine, although it appears to respond much faster. 

A windoze install was easy, using the boot from CD ROM feature.
It didn't appear slow either.

Worth a look.
