    I'm running Win 7 and want to set up a 98 vm so I can play old games. I used to have at least four 98se machines in my home, but they've all been upgraded and I long since (stupidly) "lost" the 98 installation discs. Is there any source for a 98 installation disc these days?

    Are the games DOS or Windows-based?

    I still run various DOS games (Warcraft II, Incredible Machine) with DOSBox (http://www.dosbox.com/).

    For Windows-based games, they might still run in Win 7 (I run Starcraft, which came out in 1998, and I have also run the original Sims) in Win 7. They might also work within XP Mode.

    By the way, I am running Win 7 Pro, 64-bit.
