    Just for sh_t & giggles (as my friend says), has any one install MS-DOS and play some of those games that ran only in DOS?

    I would do it, but I can't find my MS-DOS 6.22 disks Not to mention I wouldn't know how to install a sound card and CD-ROM support.

    Easier than Q or MSDOS - when I last owned a Windows machine, I used dosbox

    Go to abandonia for license-free DOS games.

    By the way, dosbox works on Macs too. It's still PPC-only but I was able to compile the source for my Intel Mac, and it sped it up considerably.
