Default "This system does not support fullscreen mode"

I have downloaded a couple of games I first played on the Amiga many years ago. Have tried running them on a fairly new laptop with Windows Vista but get a message headed '16 bit MS DOS Subsystem' which says "This system does not support fullscreen mode. Choose Close to exit the application". Is there a way around this please?

Dosbox, and as you have to ask you'll need some instructions:
