Thanks a ton for the upload, I've been wanting to play this for probably the last 12 years or so. Only problem now is I have no clue how to actually run it. I'm on Ubuntu but have Vista as well. I've tried setting Wine to open it as Windows 95 but it keeps giving me the message on install that it requires Win 95. Any advice?

Must be that the installer uses some sysfiles that aren't included in WINE ... even possible that the installer is dosbased as many from that era.

As you also have Vista I think your best bet will be VPC2007/W98SE.

So if anyone else happens along this game here's my advice: just use compatibility mode to run it from windows. I spent about four hours trying to run Windows 95 in VirtualBox and in the end gave up. I booted up Win XP in virtual box and just ran it in compatibility mode and it runs fine. I suppose the one advantage of wasting my night in VB is that now I know how to install obsolete operating systems in DOS...

That aside I'm pumped I got the game to run finally and have something to look forward to later this week! Thanks for the help and upload.

VirtualBox and W9x aren't really compatible.
W9x is best ran in VPC.
