Interesting I haven't had any problems.  One or two glitches but all in
all very stable.  I did a recent post with my configuration and methods.
 Might try adjusting the FIFO buffers inside of win98.  Made a big
difference in my case.  I also had a keyspan adapter as the serial port.

Another thing I did was make sure that nothing else is running at the
same time, including a screen saver/power off.  One time the screen shut
down and and it blue screed the host system.  You can get away with a
few programs in the background if they are not actively doing anything.
 But if they are writing to the HD....then it gets questionable.
