I can vouch for Slackware 10, Novell Linux Desktop ( preview ), and Gentoo working quite well with it.  You have to use either 16 bit or 32 bit video -- there is no 24.

If you go this route, do it the other way around.  Windows running on Unix
using vmware or some such.  You want the less stable operating system 
running on the more stable one.  When Windows crashes you want it just 
taking down Windows, not the whole system.  Then you don't lose all your
work and you don't have to wait for the whole machine to reboot.
