When I run this game in DOSBox, it runs reeeaaally slow. Unplayably slow. Ctrl+f12 doesnt help at all, frameskip is useless as well.

My pc specs are:
Celeron 566mhz
128mb RAM
WinXP Pro
ATI Raedon 7200

I don't think this game is too advanced for my comp, as it is like ten years old, LOL.

You can simplly use google to find web pages about vmware and freedos or msdos7.1 (in my case works better) as I don't believe that you have original DOS floppies.

Quote from Freedos.org:

Warning: DO NOT use FreeDOS Beta9 with an installed Windows NT/2000/XP, as the batch script messes up the NT bootloader. An update will be available soon.

I guess thats out of the question... LOL

VMWare creates PC emulator on your existing PC, but I don't think it will work much better then DOSBox on your machine.
