i have installed dosbox and the dependencies, i have put the config file in e:\data, i put the win 98 iso in e:\dos\c. and when i open dosbox it says (i think)

z:\>set blaster-0228 17 d1 t1
z:\> *something*:\d *something*\|:
drive c is mounted *something else*
z:\>e:
c:\>e:
c:\>

Why?
Win 98 is obsolete and I can't see that a phone would run it anyway.

I don't believe Win98 has display-drivers for 320x240, you could check that for a start.

Good stuff (I forgot myself for a moment or two) - can't really help with Win98, I think you probably know best here.

DosBox is just a DOS emulator allowing you to play older DOS based games on newer OSs like Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. You may be able to get it to help you run windows 3.1 on your phone since it is basicly a shell on top of DOS. But any newer OS the program won't be able to do anything with it. Its not designed to run an OS. Its designed to run DOS based software on newer OSs.

I found a couple of videos showing the phones running Windows 98. What you're missing is that they are not running the full version. They are running a version called 98 Lite.

Can you not figure it out from the website and videos? Personally if i wanted windows on my phone I'd install windows mobile or try t find a windows 8 mobile beta.
