    Default Old Dos Games for 286 computer

    Hi, Don't suppose anyone has any old games run in Dos, on 5 1/4 floppies lying around gathering dust, have they?
    I have a 286 computer, Win 3.11, Dos 6.?? Love all the old games, but tired of the ones I have.
    I do have a have new computer, but still use 'old faithfull' for games.
    Thanks, Jan
    PS.No problems with the 286 in 13 years of steady use!! Only one battery replacement!

    Thanks JM, Had a look at the underdog site, looks good, but alas no way to get them on the 286. (I don't think, I'm not very technical) It has no internet, and only one drive for 5 1/4 disks. Jan

    Thank for your help guys, woe is me I don't have an external zip drive.
    The new computer just has a CD Rom drive and a 3 1/2 A: drive.
    Thought maybe someone had some disks lying around, I'd be willing to buy them.
