The attached patch does indeed fix both the DISPLAY.SYS and Windows 
Setup problems for me. Thanks a lot! I can't reproduce the 
dosidle-problem either, it works now.

A straight non-networked Windows for Workgroups 3.11 installation now 
hangs after loading the Program Manager.

I noticed that SeaBIOS does not work correctly with parallel make, log 
excerpts following:
