yep. win98 works fine if you can get past the protection fault error on every startup. so plug in a keyboard and hit enter to get past it and boot up right.

That's what you get from emulation, unfortunately. I expect QEMU Accelerator would run on the xbox, though, which would work substantially faster (virtualisation rather than emulation). The licence terms of the accelerator forbid it to be redistributed, though, so you'd have to download it from the QEMU site yourself and install it in your X-DSL setup.

I need to find the tools from step 5...I tryed the links to the tutorial on psphacker, and that seems to be down...along with the other link that takes you to google.

Good thing I copied the text out of the page so I still know what to do...but I need to find the tools from step 5 if anybody could help?

Unfortunatly QEMU Accelerator needs a good chunk of ram in order to offer any benefits over QEMU standard procesor emulation. So unless your xbox has the 128MB ram upgrade QEMU Accelerator is realy not an option. This has already been talked about at length in this forum before it got severly trimmed.

Anyway there are a great many tweaks you can do to make 98 run very well. do a google for 98 optimization. since 98 was released there have been literally hundreds of tweaks to make it faster. I installed 98 last year and made run very well. Then I lost interest like you do with these things, and deleted it. but hey I may have another bash and publish all my steps here. so watch this space

same problem...do I install windows 98 on the computer or what? I don't want to overwrite my current version of windows I'm running...Windows XP. The guy who wrote the tutorial on the PSP site cannot write his intruction clearly enough in English, though he did a good job on the most part. I have xdsl running on the xbox and I have all the files I need (the windows98 iso, the qemu files etc.) but what do i do now??? I'm not a noob with computers I just need good, clear instructions. How do I start qemu in xdsl? Where am I supposed to put the files specifically on the xbox(if u could post exact paths it would be greatly appreciated) If anyone can help, thnx in advanced!
