The log has the following:

I know 98SE isn't officially supported but some people have reported success so I was hoping that I would be able to get it working. If possible I'd like to help fix it, but it depends on what exactly the unknown command is: if it's an opcode then fixing it is probably outside my expertise; it it is an interrupt I might be able to help, and if a CD-ROM thing, I could probably spelunk the qemu code which does not exhibit this particular bug.
Even if I can't fix it myself, or someone can get to it before me, I would be happy to help with the debugging by providing more detailed logs, if there are commands for producing such.
