[Qemu-devel] Windows98 under SUSE 9.2: Only 640*480 in 16 colors

I have a fairly sofisticated qemu instalation, since I'm using it to
"port" my personal Windows98 Machine to a new Suse 9.2 environment. The
windows machine had four HDs, with several partitions each, so I need
about 36 hours of continuous checking, disk cloning, qcow commits,
geometry experiments, etc. to get qemu correctly launched. A nightmare,
since for valid geometries, some partitions on virtual disks were ok and
other were pure garbage. I had to split each disk (of four) in several
virtual disks and burn some goats to gods, but it is working fine now.

But now I have another showstop: I only get qemu emulation in 640*480,
16 colors.

I select the Cirrus driver, as indicated in qemu FAQ, but Windows says
that hardware is incorrectly configured and it keeps it in 640*480, 16
colors :-(.

I'm tired, working 18 hours today, fighting with this. Any help

QEMU is a wonderful piece of work, nevertheless. Simply stunning.

PS: My host is Suse 9.2, working in 1280*1024, 24 bits. I was hoping
Windows as 1024*768, 16 or 24 bits; I would be happy.
