Having trouble playing old games.

  1. OK call me stupid but I have 2 games that i think are cool granted they are old as h3ll. Dragon's Lair and Space Ace. I used to play them when i had win 98 i believe where you had to make a dos boot disk I believe. Is there any way to play these with XP?

    I have right clicked on the executables and changed the properties for win 95 and win 98 and increased all memory options to teh highest it would go.

    Originally it said no emm memory. I editted my config and autoexec and copied it into a temp directory where my game files were. I was able to get the splash screen of dragon's lair to come up then it would freeze. Any suggestions? I also tried downloading a thing called DosBox? But havent the slightest idea how to use it. I have many modern games as well but something about those 2 i wouldnt mind playihng again :)
