Thanks, it doesn't work on OpenBSD either - so we'll drop that idea.  When 
I first tried VMWare on WinXP, I hadn't yet had X running on OpenBSD.  It's 
running now with Firefox and OOo, but not VMWare.

I just tried QEMU on OpenBSD with a copy of Win98SE virtual disk from 
VMware and it "just works"!!  Win98 is complaining about some new devices, 
but seems to be working; no network access yet though.  I'll probably 
reinstall Win98 to new virtual disk.  I see QEMU has downloads for OSX, so 
perhaps that's the way to go...
