ok now i have this old game, Master of Orion, which i looooooooove.

but my new pc cant run it as it doesnt have enough dos memory. now i know that i could re-configure the .sys files but im no good with computers.

so my question is does anyone here know where i can download a good, FREE easy-to-use DOS emulator?

thanx for any help.

Try DOSBox:

http://dosbox.sourceforge.net

It works pretty well for a lot of games. Of course, others it just crashes outright. Wink But it's free, so try it first.

There's also VirtualPC which allows you to run whatever native OSs you want in Windows:

There's a free time-limited demo, after which it costs $129 (!!!) to buy it.
