The specifications are quite a bit different than an IBM-AT
compatible.  I have seen a couple of pc98 emulators that run on
Windows, and they have their own BIOS implementation.  However, they
are slow and run on Windows... :-(.  I have a "newer" pc98 machine I
can get the BIOS from for my own personal use (say using it on that
machine), but you are right, there would be problems distributing it.

I'd kinda hoped that one of the Japanese hackers had created qemu
patches that google somehow overlooked in my search.  The details of a
PC98 machine are complex...

Maybe I have a new project :-).
