Hello to you all.
I am trying to set up a Windows for Workgroups 3.11 machine on QEMU version 
1.5.2 obtained from http://lassauge.free.fr/qemu/.

-As part of this setup I want to have 16.7 million color support on an 800x600 
window, perhaps more. When I try to install the drivers for the Cirrus Logic 
GD5446 graphics card obtained from 
http://www.claunia.com/qemu/drivers/index.html, and I set up the resolution as 
previously described (under Other Brand and Other Model) and restart Windows,

install the Microsoft Windows Network with TCP/IP 3.2b, manually setting an IP 
address to and a default gateway to When I install 
IE5.01 and skip the modem setup, it won't navigate to any site.

For posterity, here's the full content of my boot.bat: qemu-system-i386w -hda 
wfw311.vhd -hdb fat:/C:/Users/mahir256/Downloads/msdos622-win311 -boot 
order=cad -m 128M -soundhw sb16 -vga cirrus -cdrom wfw311.iso -net user -net 

Never mind the reasons why I would want to run a clearly obsolete OS in the 
2010s. I simply wish to know if there's anything I can do to fix these 
problems, or if they come from changes in the structure of QEMU since version 
0.9.1 (the last version for which someone on the Internet has installed QEMU). 
[When I try to run 0.9.1 obtained from Lassauge's page at all, it crashes on my
