I've just got the build 99 of chicago to boot reliabley, each time in PCem. I think everybody should know how difficult it is to install, but using an AMI 386SX Clone with an AMD 33Mhz CPU, a Trident video card and 9 megs of ram, it's possible.
However, I cannot get networking to work in the build as it cnnot aquire an IP on the Novell Netware Card. I'm new to PCem v13.1, so what is the IP config? (I've been only using PCem v12)
Anyway, I would like to add some important info to the wiki as soon as 1 month has passed (to get access) because this build has some important notes and the install way doesn't work (tried it in VPC and with the same above machine with an intel processor at ~33Mhz as well).
Offtopic Comment
For any who ask, I don't use 86box accept for 8088 machines as it uses over 500megs of ram and hogs my machine, which only has 2gegs and is extemely slow.


EDIT: Here's a screenshot:

Did work after all. Only used the ip 10.0.2.15 and gateway 10.0.2.2. No problems with that.

- ATeamInc: For what it's worth, 86Box now uses the same amount of RAM as PCem, if not even slightly less, so you should give it a try again.

In fact yes, and the recent builds are now way better optimized than older ones. I have tried 86box, it is full of features, however it does need quite a powerful processor to achieve full speed emulation. That was anyways a while back, and I have upgraded to 8gb so that is now not a problem.
