i was able to install, but not run, windows 95/96/98 in a virtual machine (tried both in virtual pc 2007 and sun virtualbox 3.0)
setup works fine from ms-dos 6, but after installing windows it hangs upon boot.

maybe there are some settings in vm to consider?

Are you trying it to run on a 64-bit CPU?

Core 2 Duo/Quad.
Latest P4, or PD?

Sometimes especially Windows 95 refuses/or run bad on 64-bit CPU's.
It can also that Windows 98 and ME are affected.

Windows 3.11 and NT 3.5 work even better on a 64-bit cpu.

But try to disable the hardware virtualization first (in VPC console itself) and otherwise try and non 64-bit CPU (if you have one).

I Have a 64-bit CPU Running 32-bit Vista. Win9x works fine for me. I even have the hardware virtualization.

I'm running Windows 98 (and used to run Windows 95) under VMware on my Macbook Pro without any issues.

Yeah, there shouldn't be any problems with them in the VM. You can I guess try VMWare, or try an emulator like Bochs.
