    Dos games are games that do not run in a windows environment, that run in dos mode. Some can be run in the shell still provided in NT based systems but not very many, very well.

    Unless you are using 9.X, ME you probably will not have much luck.

    I've never had any problems getting a DOS game to run in XP. Hell, I got Daggerfall to run, and that one's notorious for not running in XP. DOS games died out in 1997, so there's really a plethora to choose from. Two things you may need are VDMSound, which is a DOS sound emulator, and a CPU killer. This page lists a bunch of them.

    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
