Qemu is installed, normally fron Sid.
There is a win98 installation on a separate disk drive (dual boot).

I have booted Knoppix in Qemu. A console session "knoppix single" can be run. 
A KDE session, their script or kdm, will not run. Apparently, dcop fails to 
start and there is not sufficient memory left in the ramdisk (where knoppix 
CD runs) to go through with it.

The Win98 CD that I have is a upgrade CD and is not bootable. Attempts to run 
it after successfully booting a DOS diskette designed to Win98 installations 
in qemu fail (and it may not be possible to install "from scratch" into an 
image file with an upgrade CD but I would like to have it start and then tell 
me so!)
