Actually, I very much remember it being done in windows, and the windows disks all ran well once I set the exe's to compatibility mode. I've used dosbox before, but thank you kindly for the offer, it shouldn't be an issue.

Worse comes to worse: my brothers fiancee has a laptop running windows XP. It'll run there or I'm a simians mothers brother.
