    Well isn't that just what I needed! I didn't even think to hunt for options
    on the web. Thanks...

    why do you even need a bootdisk when you can reboot using a shortcut
    with custo m autoexec and config.sys?

    anyways, i emailed you a link

    Well, to boot into the windows98 installer... for clarification so you know what I mean I'll attach the link to the article I was following. In Magpi
    #96, the Raspberry Pi Magazine...

    It got fully installed. I have a Win98hd.img, hard drive with a perfect
    install of Win98, I have Win98.img and a Win98Boot.img... however, even following the article to a tee I can't get past instructions #08 (Well I'm stuck AT #08...). I can't get dosbox to boot into Win98. :/

    Getting there, but have to dive in with a clean mind tonight... if you do
    take a look, any suggestions?

    If you're using win98, why not just use virtualbox or quemu?
