    Default discworld won't run for wife

    Shes been on at me to find a way to run the old Discworld games, I think we used to play them on win95. I thought it would just be a case off running xp in compatability mode, the game installs but when we try to play we can't get past the welcome screen.
    These are old discs and a little scratched maybe, but seems to have installed ok so I don't see that as being the problem.
    Any ideas?

    You'll need DosBox to run most any older game in an XP environment.
    Info on doing so is at the site (a forum etc there)
    Fairly easy to work with once you know the basics
    Any probs with it, post back your questions
