How big is your virtual partition supposed to be? Take
that value, divide by 16 and 63 and then add
-hdachs <cylinder>,16,63 and see if that works. I'm 
not using anything special (other than stuff to make
it work with Solaris), and I've gotten win98, win2k pro,
win2k server, winxp home upgrade and win 2003 to
install.  They don't always run right once I start
mucking with them, but the great thing is you can 
keep a backup of the image in case you screw something

This has worked for me with the cvs code, and not
including the patch that was posted today.
