QEMU is a good processor emulator which uses dynamic translation to achieve acceptable performance levels. QEMU is especially nice because it requires no kernel module and it can emulate lots of different processors.

Using QEMU in Ubuntu is easy, start by installing the qemu package, then proceed to the commandline (for installation):

$ qemu-img create -f qcow win_nt4_wks.img 1G
Formating 'win_nt4_wks.img', fmt=qcow, size=1048576 kB
$ qemu -hda win_nt4_wks.img -cdrom win_nt4_wks.iso -boot d -m 128 -user-net

Then use the following command line boot the already installed operating system:

$ qemu -hda win_nt4_wks.img -boot c -m 128 -user-net

That's it, it's just that easy! The obligatory screenshot:
