H Xavier,

It could be a Windows 98-related problem, unfortunately; we don't currently 
test the configuration tool (or eCos distribution) under Windows 98, since 
there has been no client demand as yet. If you can find a WinNT machine to 
try it on, and it works OK there, then it might narrow it down to a problem 
with Win98. Meanwhile perhaps someone else might have a better idea whether 
or not there's a problem with the CDL code itself.
