But now we have much better emulators. It was good because speed was good on machines of that age - right because of partial emulation.
So, I think that you should not waste your time with it. Unless you have some really good "own" reason. Unfortunately, I'm sure that SW will not show sympathy for that

Most of Gem productivity apps were running fine too, and serial and paralell ports were correctly emulated. I remember connecting to BBS with it. No games nor demos were running of course.
I was using AHDI if I remember well. Be careful with partitioning, old TOS generally like no more than 32 MB partitions, especially for boot. Check for the max partition size allowed by your TOS version.
I guess the sample disk image doesn't have HD driver installed. Install ahdi driver on it.
On the other side, on a Raspberry Pi 3, Aranym reaches the speed of a CT60, and Hatari a Mega STE @32.
You will achieve much more with your old laptop and with an increased compatibility. It worth giving a try.
