One might also say we don't give a Daum...

Also look into 86Box
Dell Optiplex 745 Q6600, 8GB, AMD FirePro V3900, SSD + HD, 2000/XP/7
i7 9700K, 32GB, MSI GTX1060, NVMe SSD + HD, Windows 10

More cycles - assuming your host CPU can handle it.

30,000 cycles is only equivalent to something like 486 cpu, 75mhz speed. That's pretty much bare minimum for Win98.
Check out DOSBox Distro:

a lightweight Linux distro (tinycore) which boots off a usb flash drive and goes straight to DOSBox.
