Which Version of plex86 do you use?

At my machine I've never seen any graphical screen inside plex86 :-(

I tried installing Win98 - it failed.

Scandisk run successfully. After that, Win98's last words are:
    Die Installation wird vorbereitet...
    Systemregistrierung wird überprüft.
    preparing installation...
    checking the system registry.

Plex86 crashes (exits suddenly) after Win98 has printed these two lines.

This are the last lines plex86 reported to console:
bochs: vga: io write 3c0: address mode reg=16
bochs: vga: io write: 3cf: reg 05: value = 10h
bochs: vga: io write 3c0: address mode reg=16


::sysIOIn: No handler defined for port 0x18.

bochs: panic, dma: io write to address 00000000, len=2
Shutting down plugins
bochs: Note: X11: bx_gui_c::exit() not implemented yet.
Unmapping guest physical memory.
Unmapping monitor print buffer.
Tearing down VM
Closing VM

Here's what I did (very simple):
- boot from a Win98 bootdisk image
Inside the Win98/DOS prompt:
- fdisk /mbr
- create a partition with fdisk
- d:
- setup

The config file is the following:
memory = 32

plugin = ./plugins/bochs/

bochs-opt boot: a
bochs-opt diskc: file="../../win98.diskimage", cyl=1024, heads=16,
bochs-opt floppya: 1_44=../../win98_bootdisk, status=inserted
bochs-opt cdromd: dev="/dev/cdrom", status=inserted
bochs-opt keyboard_serial_delay: 200
bochs-opt floppy_command_delay: 500
bochs-opt vga_update_interval: 200000
bochs-opt mouse: enabled=0
bochs-opt private_colormap: enabled=0
bochs-opt i440fxsupport: enabled=0
bochs-opt newharddrivesupport: enabled=1
bochs-opt ips: 1000000
bochs-opt time0: 938581955

plugin = ./plugins/bochs/iodev/

I also couldn't install Windows for Workgroups 3.11 - after setup copied 
some files, plex86 crashed :-(

I use the CVS version of plex86 (2002-05-20)
Is an older version of plex86 more stable?

I'd like to see the _first_ boot screen of Windows98...

I use SuSE 7.3 with a vanilla 2.4.18 kernel.
