    That might not 100% work, as XP ain't built to run back end titles.

    Here is what I do. I have a small (18GB) partition with windows 98se on it and I install all my old programs there. You could also have one with win95 or just dos.

    Try canadian_divx's suggestion first ... if it doesn't help, I guess you'd be forced to dual-boot, as wingman says.
