first I want to say thank you to all of you for giving us a really useful 

You might be interested that there are certain issues on a current FC3/i386 as 
host system.

First, it is not possible to use the binary distribution 0.6.1. This one dumps 
core immediately.

Then I have tried to compile both 0.6.1 and a CVS version of 2005-02-06. Both 
compile without problem, but then fail to execute a Windows 95B (freezes 
while trying to install boot code on harddisk) or Windows 98SE installation 
(installed system does not come up after final reboot, each time slightly 
different). Both Windows are German versions.

It should be noticed that it IS possible to get the emulated system up by 
playing with some parameters (e.g. give -std-vga on command line, use Win safe 
mode), but none of these ways does work reliably. You have a chance of 
approx. 1/4 to 1/3.

Maybe you have got an idea. There are reports which show that Qemu once worked 
with these OS', so it's an interesting question why it doesn't now...

Kind regards
