Why don't you use load up Windows 95 into VPC if you need to run that stuff?
I have old games that have source ports that work in new operating systems but the installers are 16bit DOS programs so I can't get to the game.

Its kind of annoying being able to run but not install a game. The XP virtual PC sounds like its easily integrated into the OS.

Whether that's worth $50 though... I'm not sure.

I've never used a Windows 95 VPC... how can I do that?

EDIT: Heh, newegg already sold out of their preorders for Home Premium so I just preordered it from Amazon. Its just too cheap to pass up...
