    I've got a few here that won't work on anything better than "Pentium" class PC's no matter if it's 3.11 or SE. ;)

    I've got a whole bunch, some of them worked on winxp, but some of them didn't. I've got LodeRunner for win3.1, but it still works on xp. Syndicate doesn't though:-( Also hoping to play police quest 1+2, space quest 1, kings quest 1, and this "Super Speed" racing game (Similar to those old arcade racing games, where you have an aerial view of the entire track), and then some older ones like Captain Comic. I pretty much have a box of 3.5's that I'd have to go through to remember everything. Can't recall which ones I had problems with on win95, but a few of them gave me trouble.

    Sounds like you only need DOS then. All the earlier * Quest games were DOS based, Captain Comic is definitely DOS based... Syndicate was too.

    To make life easy, all you really need to do it either make a boot disk, or install MS-DOS 6.22 or similar on the PC.

    Well, after fighting with the popups for nearly a minute, I closed down the browser session. I can't see any sense in visiting ANY site that is so disrespectful with popup advertising. :thumbs do
