Description

I have installed VirtualBox on Suse, and I wanted to install Win98. I made everything I should, modprobe and userpermissions, but every time I start win98 VM it just crashes. I searched over the net, and in forums, and it seams that many people have the same problem, but I found no solution to it.

I resolved this, as follows: Go to Settings | System | Acceleration and DISABLE the option "Enable
