Good suggestions.  VMware will almost certainly work.

Wine looks less certain:

http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/search?name=peachtree&company=&medal=&date_start%5B1%5D=1&date_start%5B2%5D=1&date_start%5B0%5D=2000&date_start%5B3%5D=23&date_start%5B4%5D=59&date_end%5B1%5D=5&date_end%5B2%5D=23&date_end%5B0%5D=2005&date_end%5B3%5D=23&date_end%5B4%5D=59&search=app

It looks like Peachtree 2002 works under wine, but is unsupported by
Codeweavers.  Peachtree 2004 and 2005 don't seem to work at all under
Codeweavers.  Not a good sign.
