     I've been playing around with Windows 98 via qemu and seeing
     how much software I could find and get working without having
     to do too much work, such as avoiding the need for newer
     versions of DirectX or NET installation. Here's what I've found
     so far:

    +-----------+
    |Development|
    +===========+
         DirectX 9.0c - http://www.oldversion.com/windows/download/directx-9-0c
                        However, it may crash Windows during the install on qemu;
                        It may be better to let a CD-ROM video game install newer
                        versions.

         Java Platform 1.5.0 - http://www.oldversion.com/windows/download/java-platform-1-5-0
                               You will need to rename the downloaded file
                               from "sun" to "sun.exe" and it may crash
                               Windows during the install on qemu.
