+1 for DOSBox. But you really need to be more specific as to what games you're talking about. I've managed to get quite a few old titles running by using the built-in Compatibility Mode.

If they're dos based, check out www.dosbox.com. Works quite well.

Thanks for answering back. I tried to mount a new directory, either I'm doing something wrong or my cpu won't let me
