However, I had trouble getting the host CDROM to work with qemu on both my PC and the Xbox. I tried adding /dev/cdrom to the config, but my PC seems to ingnore it.
I haven't played with network settings too much as of yet, but once there's a good way to access the internet/home network with Win98, I imagine it will actually be somewhat useful. (At least more useful than just for show).

If your running qemu on a Windows PC (Host PC) you can't mount the CDrom drive. You can however mout other iso images from qemu while you have Win98 (guest OS) running. Use Ctrl+Alt+2 to bring up the qemu consol. From there type help. that'll give you the info on what to type to load a differant CD iso.
To close the qemu consol to get back to Win98 (Guest OS) Ctrl+Alt+1.
For more info on qemu you start by checking out qemu.com
(I'm not affilated with that sight or any other)

if i can manage to get hold of a windows 98 cd i'm definetly gonna give this a try.
i was wondering if anyone knew anything about using a USB keyboard in windows 98. i know that windows 98 (first edition) has no USB support, but does running it under Qemu allow this or is second edition a must?

So your xbox controller works the same way in win98 , A= Left mouse click , B= Right mouse click just as it does in XDSL. Same goes for the keyboard , whatever your keyboard is in XDSL is the same in win95 or 98 or 98se or XP.
You can also set keys from within the qemu consol to have just 1 key to represent 2 or 3 keys on your keyboard .
eg: ctrl+alt+delete set to A+S
handy if you need ctrl+alt+delete in Win98 since these keys would conflict with the host os.

this windows 2000 is a stripped down version compiled by myself today with sp4 i put together today in class boots in about 1 -2 minutes
am currently striping and tweaking the windows XP pro SP1 i have successfully gotten to boot on the XBox owever freezes and crashes very often due to lack of ram (hence the neccessary tweaking)

I can't fricken believe win98 is running. And it really does run pretty nicely. I have a pentium 166 i use for my server, and this is much faster then that. Awesome job figuring this out. Sadly that the other Winbox/Xindows or whatever project never did go anywhere other then posts back and forth. Not needed now, as I can personally testify (along with others here so far) it's actually working just fine, nice speed, and fullscreen and all (can't tell your using DML running 98).

EDIT: btw, i have tried this twice now, and the win98 installation hangs at the date\time properties screen. (at the 'setting up hardware and finalizing settings' section of the install)
anyone else havin this prob?
