    Ok, I am trying to get some old DOS games includeing Full Throttle to run on Windows XP (NTFS file system, some dos games still run) and they worked, but the sound is like horrible cause the darn drivers that were supported for the game were like old ones and did'nt even have my brand which is SiS. Is there an emulator which forces a dos game to run with current drivers and stuff so it sounds better? I have a copy of WMware workstation and Virtual PC. Is there a DOS emulator/updated version for those?

    You could right-click the .exe file and set the DOS environment manualy.. like the memory settings, extended memory?
    Just puzzle a bit with the setting, if it doesn't work you can reset the default again..

    Are you running Windows XP, NT, or 2000?

    If so, get a DOS-sound program called VDMSound. Webpage is here.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
