Installing Windows 98 in Virtualbox
I just want to try this out. I've installed virtualbox on my PC running on Jaunty and was able to test it with a couple of LiveCD's I have of other linux distro's. Now, I thought of installing windows 98 on virtualbox as an experiment. Are there any issues for me to consider with my Ubuntu installation and Win98 on virtualbox? As it is a virtual system I'll be installing to, I think not...am I right in this aspect? I tried digging around for info, but was unable to find the information required and much of the links I found were to do with XP.
I setup Virtualbox and my Virtual system for windows 98 and tried to insall it to a virtual drive in the usual way (this is the first time I'm trying something like this). This is how I loaded it up until I encountered a problem. Virtualbox loads with my bootable Windows 98 CD and I select, "Start computer with CD-ROM Support". It loads from here on and then reports that drive C: is not a fat system (I've used it before ). How could I setup C: drive for virtualbox to run windows? I tried "FDISK" on the windows 98 cd itself as it suggests. Then when I try to run setup it returns, "Windows setup requires 7340032 bytes" and freezes there. Any help? Thanks very much for any replies...
