The tutorial advises you on your display driver choices, as does this discussion topic. As far as I know the advice hasn't changed.

You understand of course that Win98 is not a supported guest, so whether the third party drivers you choose to install work or not is between you and the authors of those drivers, if you can find them. It will only draw a conversation here if it happens to coincide with the interests of a fellow user.

Are there any drivers available for Intel HD audio? Having some audio issues so I'm swapping around devices trying to troubleshoot but the Intel HD Audio just flat out doesn't work. I can't find a driver either for Win 98SE...

Well, you wont find a T-Ford that runs on unleaded either :) OK, for Win98 your options are either AC97 (Intel, Realtek had drivers) or SB16 (or compatible)....

I was working on this problem yesterday Shared Folders / Clipboard Host<=>Guest

To transfer files, you don't need shared folders or networking. Can access the VDI file using 7-Zip (which is free) or PowerISO

If you could include this in your Tutorial, I think it would help other people too.

You do realize that audio device inside VM is emulated?
Choose SoundBlaster16, it has native '9x drivers.

This topic is for discussing points raised in the tutorial. It is not a general Win9x support topic. It would be best if you started your own topic if you want to have an involved discussion.
