I bought L&D off ebay a while back but I can't play it. When I try to designate a drive to install to it says that it is not a valid drive. Anyone know a way around this?

What's your OS?

If you have WInXP, then use DOSBox. (there is Proram link on Abandonia's front page, follow it and download and install DOSBOx. Also there is tutorial on how to use DOSBox.)

I don't think they made a Windows version. This was made back in '88.

But there was I believe C32 version and Mac version of the same game.

If is DOS version, then with proper setup should run in DOSBox.

If is Mac version, you need Mac emulator with installed OS. (Basilic comes to mind)

C32 version of the game can be played with WinUAE, if you have proper kickstarts.

Does the copy on this site need to be installed or just copied over?

Games on this site are usually already installed within the archive. If you encounter files which look like something you could see on a floppy install disk then you need to install the game yourself before playing. But this is rare, I would say that about 90% of the games on this site are already fully installed and ready to play.
