    Damn, when you said old PC games, you really meant old PC games lol. I think in XP when you install a program you can specify how to run it, but I am not sure if DOS is an option. There is probably a way to emulate it out there on the net.

    Dunno . . . but you can open a "Command Prompt window" by clicking on the RUN command: Start > Run
    then type CMD and press enter. You'll get a dos screen . . . dunno how much you'll be able to do with it, but it's worth a try.

    yeah you can but you may have issues with the sound. or at least I always used to. but then again my sound card is built into the mainboard so that may have been why.

    what games you playin? commander keen? wolfenstein? duke nukem?
