you will need to install the programs while working with the 98 image. Use an iso program to create the iso of the install programs you want, then in reference your new iso in start.bat, then when you boot the win98 image you new iso should have been mounted

The 98.sh file is for booting the win98 image and you can mount the cd rom drive with, sound and net by adding commands in 98.sh but the windows image is read only and loaded to the xbox memory so any progs you install in 98 while running on the xbox will be lost when you reeboot. If you want to permanently install programs you need to do it while the image is writable on the pc then tranfer the image back to the xbox. At least this is my experience with it. I dont know why the 98 image is not writable on the xbox maybe someone can shed some light on it.

Ok make your iso with all the you want to install in win 98 name your iso anything you want. lets say for example we call it myprogs.iso Just put -cdrom myprogs.iso in start.bat. then when you boot win98 in qemu on your pc the myprogs.iso will be mounted as a cdrom drive and you would be able to see all your stuff on it within windows file manager. If you cant drag and drop anything there is something wrong with your install and you need to follow the tutorial more closely

couldnt get it to work that way. i just injected the gps folder into the win98 img.

i installed active sync and alturion, when i load it it brings the splash screen then loads and closes the program immediately.

i restarted and tried it several other times. any ideas. i cant seem to figure it out, i also tried a fresh bakup img that i had made and reinstalled alturion gps. still it didnt work at all.
