It is the emu86 that is contained in the linusbios project.

There are about 100 variations on emu86 floating around.

The Linux kernel is developed using bitkeeper.  Instead of copying
kernel images from kernel.org you can use this to keep up to date with
the latest changes.

bk clone  bk://linux.bkbits.net/linux-2.5 target_dir

After you have the initial tree down, to get updates
cd target_dir
bk pull

You can get bitkeeper here:
It is a free download.
