A few follow-up questions

Thanks to everyone who helped last week. I have a couple follow-up questions about getting TIE Fighter to run. I'd also like to know if anyone here is extremely familiar with whatever www.xwaupgrade.com does? Basically what is all out there for all of these games in the mod world?

I'd like to run a virtual machine. My PC has a lot of power. (i5 3570K @ 4.2ghz with 8GB RAM) I'm just not sure how to do it or where to go or all of that stuff. I think a Win98 VM would be ideal. Anyone who can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.
