From log file it looks like you tried to attach HDD as secondary master, which isn't really good idea (CDROM is there). Could you try to reconfigure your HDDs to more simple config. Primary master - HDD, Secondary master - CD-ROM, nothing else.

Actually I assume that your CDROM device is just not available. Can you confirm this? Try to unmount the CDROM device.

After restarting my laptop today, there was NO problem in starting win98. So it seems that it was some environment problen on my pc. Thank You for your help. Regards Eduard.

P.S. FYI In the meantime I installed the same operating system (win98se) on microsoft virtual pc. Installation went much faster then on virtualbox and all the work under win98 is much much faster then on virtualbox. One thing which is missing on virtualbox - parallel port support - is also there.
