Hi folk ....  sorry for the off topic.  Please reply off list.  My wife 
came home from a jumble sale with an amazing game and asked me if I 
could find a way of running it for the grandkids.  It needs a maximum of 
Windows 95.  It won't run under XP, Win 7 or Wine.  It is supposed to be 
runnable under dos, so I tried making a spare drive partition bootable 
to dos 6.22.  It won't install because it needs a language file (part of 
Win 95?).  Then I tried installing Win 95 on the same 1.6Gb partition.  
It installed just fine, but won't boot because of 'lack of RAM'.  It 
evidently can't see the ram in the same way Windows 7 can.

OK - I ought to throw the disk away and forget about it, but I'm really 
really curious.

Kind regards,        Barry.
