Oh my. :-( That's very old indeed and such an elderly CPU (a Pentium
4) does not support Intel VT. :-(

A chap on the Facebook Vintage Computer Club found a Dimension 4600 in
the trash recently and was asking what to do with it and if it was
worth keeping. Many people suggested putting it back. :-(

This suggests it might work but you may lack features such as
cut-and-paste between guest and host:

TBH I'd expect that with Oberon anyway.

But without Intel VT-x I think all this is vain speculation. :-(
