Also, thanks to Andre Przywara, whole winNT thing works but it requires

It'd be nice if we had more flexibility in defining custom machine types
so you could just do qemu -M win98.

This is wrong IMHO.  win98 and winNT can run on various different
machines, including all modern ones (yes I tried the same winNT
on my Athlon X2-64, just had to switch SATA from AHCI to IDE;
win95 works too)...  just not in kvm :)

BTW: Does anyone knows what the problem with Windows95/98 on KVM is? I
tried some tracing today, but couldn't find a hint.

Um.  The bugreport(s) come as a surprize for me: I tried to
install win98 in kvm several times in the past but setup
always failed - different messages in different versions
of kvm, either "unable to emulate" or "real mode trap" or
something else, or just lockup, usually on first reboot.
So - the bugreports talks about mouse non-working, but
this means win98 itself works somehow...  I dunno :)
