Nagi is the answer. The site's kinda seems to be down at the moment though, but it should be up soon enough again.

Dosbox is the go. I believe it's available for download from the site. Go back to the main page and there should be a link there. I'm no expert on this program as I don't use it, but I think you just need to drop and drag the game exe onto the the exe of Dosbox and it automatically starts the game.

For newer Versions of DosBox (since 6.2 I think) I recommend to set emulated machine type to 'tandy', before starting Kings Quest. Otherwise the beautiful theme at the starting screen sounds terrible.

DOSbox needs a rediculously powerfull machine to run well, so unless you have a megacomputer, i suggest partitioning your harddrive and installing DOS onto it...

Worked for me k:
