a small challenge with an old Win98 host:
I've converted a physical host running an old Win98 installation to
virtual one using a linux live CD and copy the raw disk image to a nfs
store. Using the "VBoxManage convertfrom raw" command I was able to
set up a VM that boots the old Win98 system (the harddisk was split up
to a few partitions).
The problem I have now is that the virtual hardware is completely
different from the old physical one. The big question is how to get
new drivers on the VM and from where?
o The VM seems not to support the cdrom (nor an iso image nor the
physical drive on the Ubuntu 10.10 host).
o The documents say that a shared folder is not supported with Win98.
o Also, the physical network card was another than the virtual one.
