I found a way to run all dos and win 95-98 games on a vista/xp machine you need virtual pc from microsoft it is free to use. a working copy of win 95/98. I recomend using a torrent downloader to get a working copy ie utorent or bitlord to get a iso file. daemon tools. a little patience and any dos/95/98 game. you have to set up a virtual pc, install win 95/98 onto your virtual pc use damon to create a "cd drive" you got to think around obsticals. then you install and enjoy once your virtual pc is working. It took me 4hours to figure it out and I only had the vague lead that virtual pc existed. Idea

I'm already using VMWare... which also happens to be cross platform. So I can install it on my Linux box and run Win98SE in a VMWare window under my GNOME desktop. I do the same thing under Windows XP and Windows Vista (which is lame anyways). Still, if you don't want to buy VMWare, and VPC is free, go for it I guess.

For those interested here is the link to VPC:
