These are two different approaches. Captive can be very useful as-is
(or nearly so) for running individual drivers. I've heard the safedisc
driver might be a good next target here.
Unrelated to this might be the ability to run the native Windows OS, off
of the Microsoft CD, but with a replaced kernel and HAL. Obviously that
gets you a whole virtual machine, whereas Captive is focused on giving
Linux extra capabilities.
