    Great. Is there a way to run Windows 98SE? That is something I can actually use on an old tablet. I used to have a laptop running it but it did not survive a visit from a small child. Mostly I used it for word processing with some small internet incursions.

    Maybe, But You Will Need A Beefy Android Phone :) I Might Make A Tutorial.

    Cool - This is really cool. Not having immediate access to my Android, I used one of my VirtualBox guest sessions and replaced the floppy disk image with the IMG that you provided (ignore the CP/M name in the title bar.)
