There is a Windows 98 box running in my environment. It is old and very important to keep it running (maybe for ever), but it is impossible to reinstall the application.
My VMware environment: 2 ESX 3.0 connect to SAN (NetApp) using iSCSI. I heard ESX3.0 does not support Windows 98 virtual machine.
Q#1. Any most reliable/easy way to virtualize my Windows 98 box?
Q#2. If Windows 98 cannot run in ESX3.0, can it run in other virtual environment? eg. VMware Player/Server?
Q#3. Assume VMware Player can run Windows 98 virtual machine, is it possible (or good) to run this VMware Player in a virtual machine which runs in my ESX 3.0 environment? Performance is not an issue to my application in Windows 98.
Any other ideas?
Thanks a lot.
