    Running Virtualbox 6.2.2. Installing various guest OS's; windows 95, 98 and Linux. Two purposes; learn what virtualbox can do and create a Windows 98 guest with 32 bit color to run Command and Conquer. Ultimately wish to exchange experience and discoveries about this configuration of old and new.

    For Windows 9x:
    * You should use the SciTech Display Drivers v7 (https://scitechdd.wordpress.com/ ) for Windows 9x systems. See Properties, Display driver to enable the new driver.
    * Change the default Sound Card from AC97 to Soundblaster 16 in the Audio section of VBox Settings.
