Linux : Installing 98lite under emulation on linux.

by LitePC

98lite should work great under Linux however you may need to start 98lite with the /ng startup switch to force the GUI into text mode.

The 98lite installer goes into VGA mode to display the graphic and a few more lines of text on the screen.

Win4Lin may fail with the message:

"Your DOS box has tried to go into VGA graphics mode. This is not supported. You can exit your DOS session , , ,"

Starting 98lite with the /ng command line switch keeps 98lite in text mode and the installer will work just fine.

VMWARE should handle the switch to VGA without error.
