Very impressive. A lot faster than my E6800+PT880 based build. I'm surprised that a P45/ICH10 motherboard is 98 friendly enough to be usable. What drivers did you use with it? Also how do DOS games handle it, if at all?
I used the modded INF's (don't remember from which thread exactly) and some INF's are from the motherboard manufacturer, I added a driver (from RLoew) to the SYSTEM.INI file so I could use Windows XP and later drivers on Windows 98. Almost no conflicts and the system is as fast as it could be.
The system can't return to DOS mode from Windows because of the 4GB RAM mod (VMM files) but you can go to "Command Prompt" at boot pressing F8 key.
Getting a sound card working in DOS is another story, never had any luck with newer motherboards and only the CMI8738 works on older motherboards and have no FM synthesis or the Creative Audio PCI with the horrible soundfont FM.
Had better luck with MT32-PI using a Raspberry Pi Zero 2W with a Serial to USB adapter and using SoftMPU (and HDMI to VGA adapter with audio output jack), games like Monkey Island, Lotus III, Lost Vikings, Police Quest and other Sierra games work great as long as you have a Serial Port.
