Semi-OT: Virtual PC 7 on Mac OS X

Does anyone have any experience running MS-DOS 6.22 on VPC? I've
managed to get Win3.1 running in SVGA mode at 600x800, and I've got
some of my old DOS software copied over.

What I really want to know how to do is access the CD-ROM, Ethernet
Card, and if possible get video drivers for the S3 card that VPC
emulates. Oh, and I need a mouse driver for the PS/2 Mouse so I can
run a couple games :^)

In case anyone cares, so far I've gotten the following working:
BeOS 4.5
BeOS Max
MS-DOS 6.22/Win 3.1
Windows 98SE
Windows XP Pro SP2 (it came with this, so it had better work)

Obviously only Win98 and WinXP support the cooler features such as
mapping folders on the Mac as network drives, and printing to the Mac
