    @Hopachi

    You CAN run KVM and VMWare virtual machines concurrently on Linux these days. Here's W10 (latest preview build on KVM/QEMU and W98 SE on VMWare both up concurrently.

    (KVM/QEMU I think won't do it (Win 98 SE) without mega hassle -- as I said VMWare is quite good at supporting really Old OS'es).

    This VM also runs without problems on Windows 10

    Here's the vmx VM config file -- note set HW version to '7' - the newer hardware capability of VMWare workstation / player might cause all sorts of problems.

    I'm not developing this any further as I have no use for Win98 but it was just a challenge to see if it could work one way or another -- lucky we've got plenty of spare time these days.

    W98 SE working OK for me - Opera browser too

    Opera browser initial connections...

    That had been my recollection as well, but the guide in your link does not work. It used to in previous versions and don't know when it has been changed?

    After some search, in version 56.x, it is under search pop-up:


    W98 SE working OK for me - Opera browser too [​IMG]


    Doing so did disable the Ukranian, but not the Europe bank connection. Oh well, I'll just keep blocking it with the firewalls...

    Thanks for the tip...
