Thanks guys - it actually works.  I'm amazed!  I had tried a couple of 
installations of dos - various versions.  For some reason I got nowhere 
trying to install Win 98 - I guess the 2GiB of memory is seen as a 
nonsense by these early versions.

DosBox is amazing, and really configurable.  The game is a real retro 
one:  'Mario Teaches Sums', by a firm called Nintendo!  It might keep my 
four-year old granddaughter happy for an hour or two!  I'm sure there 
are far better early-learning games out there, but I really wanted to 
see if this one could work.  More curiosity than anything else.  Thanks 

Regards,        Barry.
