well in XP usually using Compatibility Mode in shortcuts to old games, and playing with memory settings of the links the games usually always run. Some of them crash (like old point and clicks such as Beneath a Steal Sky). And sometimes some of the games dont detect windows drivers and require you to boot into DOS mode so the CD works!!).

Go to www.theunderdogs.org and try some Abandon Ware games. See for yourself
