Default Windows Emulation?

Hey all... i have a program (Fluent Tibetan for those who MUST know) that i'd love to run, but unfortunately (ha ha) must system isn't crappy enough for it... it needs to run in windows 3.1 through 95... XP won't do. I don't want to dual boot or anything, but is there a way to emulate win 3.1 (pref) or 95 within XP? A program or something?

You try the program compatibility wizard? That's how I got Quake I for DOS to install on XP.

Then, reinstall win3.1 somewhere and get a dos boot-disk.

edit : or just try to run it from a FAT/FAT32 partition. Some old programs don't really like NTFS...

You can also use VMWare or Virtual PC, install 95 or 3.1 into an "image" on your XP installation.
