It's not really possible on Win9x - it doesn't support some of the
features that are needed to run as a server, such as passing a socket
to the standard input of a subprocess.  Also it has no authentication
model at all.

TBH these days I'm surprised anyone would ever try to even run Win9x,
let alone run a server on it...
