I'm really not sure which forum to put this in :huh:

But, the just of it is, I have some programs, particularly a game (Star Wars: Rebel Assault. I've tried DOSbox, but couldn't get it running) that I'd like to run that don't run even in Windows 2k. Now, I only have Windows Vista Home Premium...so Windows Virtual PC isn't supported.

Do you think this will work out? Or should I look into some different virtualization software? I don't think a DOS game would be very difficult to handle, but you never know... Also, I've already looked into VirtualBox, and it doesn't support Windows 98, so if not Windows Virtual PC, what freeware should I use?

Any suggestions/comments are appreciated! Thanks~

As far as I can remember, VirtualBox doesn't officially support it, but it does not mean you won't be able to install and use that system with VirtualBox...
A month ago or so I successfully installed Windows 95 with VirtualBox - it works...

Because of the fact these systems are not supported, they may not be stable in virtualized environment, and you may be required to do some tweaks before being able to use them... Should be enough information on this on web...
