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
