Dear all!

I appreciate your kindness.
After all, I could hear the nostalgic startup sound by sb16 emulation.
I'm relieved to hear the error is harmless.

There still remains another problem.
Sometimes I can hear the sound, sometimes I can't. It is unclear what causes 
this behavior.
I have never been distressed in this way by actual machines, actual sb16 ISAPnP 
or other sound devices.

There still remains yet another problem.
FPU's benchmark score(1) is equivalent to classic pentium @ 30Mhz.
On the other hand, the score of integer instructions is equivalent to classic 
pentium @ 166Mhz,
The window system is so slow as you can see the movement to open a tree of 
Explorer, default file manager of windows 98. I wonder if it's becouse of the 
CPU emulation. It seems SSE is not used, vt-x doesn't work. The scores are far 
from them when I use VirtualBox using vt-x.
(1) I used HDBench, the most famous software in Japan when people use windows 
98 on actual machines.
Please note that CPU emulation via VT-x on a Windows Host machine
requires installing and using the Intel HAXM accellerator, which
acts as the device driver for accessing VT-x (similar to what the
kvm kernel module does on Linux).

These problems are not urgent or important.
Just FYI
