    Some of you with iPods are getting boot errors with windows 98. I am going to tell you how to fix them. First you need to use an ssh program and navigate to /private/var/mobile/Library/Bochs and make a new folder called win98se. do not use capitals.

    now download the windows 98 img file from here: http://[PIRACY.rs].com/files/87099290/BochsWin98SE_EN_image.tgz.html this shouldn't be illegal mods because it is abandon Microsoft software. now extract the file and do not rename the img file. drag the img file into the folder win98se. this is where i didnt realize you need to set the permissions of the win98hdd.img file to 777 that is why you were getting the error.

    now download the os.ini file from here:
    http://www.[PIRACY.mf].com/download.php?z0m2hjbwjtn and put it in the win98se folder. now respring your ipod and it will work. if you need help with any of these steps i will help you.
