There seems to be a problem with some (?) SuSE Kernels.
I tried loading the plex86 module with SuSE kernel 2.4.16-GB.
Thomas Breitfeld uses SuSE kernel 2.4.10-4GB.
On both kernels the plex86 kernel module didn't load. So I'm afraid 
other versions of the SuSE kernel don't like plex86, too.

Sometimes I could load the kernel module using
    for i in `seq 1 100`; do ./ ; done
But this wasn't really a solution because plex86 caused a reboot when 
starting with a new (empty) diskimage that was created by the script and partitioned using fdisk.

Now I've compiled a vanilla 2.4.18 (using the .config from SuSE 
2.4.16-4GB). With this kernel, plex86 seems to work - I already got the 
"Error loading operating system" message ;-)

Is there any documentation about installing Windows 98 on plex86?

Linux - life is too short for reboots.
