Windows 98 under Xen: Pt 2

Oops. That didn't work as well as I'd hoped. This should teach me not to post simply because the install started. (Probably not.)

Once the W98 VM rebooted, it reported Invalid system disk. I did two things to correct this. First, I ensured the LVM partition was set to 500M, as W98 did not provide native support for disks over 512M. Second, I booted from the CD, and rather than installing, selected recovery mode. From there, I fdisk'd the partition to ensure the MBR was set properly.

After a second install, the VM booted (better than before), but crashed as a result of VCACHE: Windows protection error failure.
