VMware Player's Unity feature is an alternative :)

Is it a dos-based game (e.g. Quake 1)?
If so, try Dosbox, with a GUI front end (like these, http://frontends.dosbox.com/wiki/Main_Page, I use Ampshell, and it runs well in Vista).

the game is Microsoft golf 2.0

my copy of XP Mode doesnt want to extract itself and install now.
says its not a valid Win32 application or something
