I unzipped the file and everything, but when I try to open catabyss.exe, a MS-DOS prompt pops up and tells me that I must type start to run the game. What exactly do I type in MS-DOS???? ('Crying')

When I do that, A MS-DOS screen pops up for a fraction of a second, then disapears and nothing happens.

It's PROBABLY too fast. The way to check is to right-click the start.exe files and change its preferences to not close on exit. This'll make a shortcut you should run, and you will be able to see the error. Try MoSlo to slow it down, or dosbox to get it to run.
