    if its a pc game for an old operating system you should use this instead:

    its a program called virtualPc that microsoft made available for free. i use it to play my old copy of magic the gathering (windows 95)

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...c/default.mspx

    you just need an iso of the operating system on your hard drive (or on a disk) and then you set up a virtual hard drive (similar to the memory cards used by playstation emulators) which allocates a lilttle hard drive space to memory. the setup is quite easy. then you can boot your OS just like it was installed on your pc.

    my choice for games:

    Megadrive (Genesis):
    Comix Zone
    Puyo Puyo 2
    kid chameleon

    Nes:
    Adventures of Dizzy
    3d world runner
    mega man V

    sadly all i can think of right now.
    My home arcade project is offically underway!

    keep posted on it!!!

    Yes and no... Read below:

    First things first. There is no DOS in Windows XP! What is called the "command prompt" is not really DOS ... it can be thought of as more of a simulation of DOS. Windows XP (and Windows 2000), unlike Windows 95, 98, and ME, are NOT built on an MSDOS foundation. So, while this makes for better speed and stability, it also makes for sometimes lousy backwards compatibility.

    However, have no fear! This page will hopefully help you to get the majority of DOS games running under XP. Of course, it's important to remember that some games just won't work on your modern computer, no matter how hard you try, so don't be too disappointed. Also please keep in mind that these tips are for Windows XP only ... for more general tips on getting games to run, please read the DOSGAMES.com Frequently Asked Questions page. Thanks!
