Wow, now that's a really complex way to play old games... But interesting.
Well, I just prefer to use my Windows 98 on second HD partition (or whatever the name in English is) and play the games there in Dos-prompt, if DosBox doesn't help. That way it's little easier for me, as I'm little lazy.

I have my P100 with 48 MB RAM too, but it's that outdated, I prefer a pair of problems (actually no problems) on my new PC with the old games, while being able to connect to internet and play Gothic 1+2 (Gothic 3 soon too ) .
