I was wondering if anyone out there could help me with running DOS-based games on my Windows XP computer? I tried making a .pif - didn't work. I tried making a DOS system disk - didn't work. I tried Command Prompt (first) - didn't work. I've exhausted all the options that I know about. Specifically, the game's problem is that it can't initialize my sound card. I have an Ensoniq AudioPCI sound card, which is uses Windows-based drivers, but my old Windows 98 computer ran the game perfectly from a restart in MS-DOS mode. Am I missing something? Can this even be done? I very much need help. I wasn't sure where to put this, since it's a tech question involving games, so if it's in the wrong place, I'm sorry.

DOS games don't work on xp. Windows 95 games wont work unless the game creator made a patch for it.
