  1. Hi,
    Here are a few options-

    If the program runs under DOS, one option is to install DOSBOX (http://www.dosbox.com/) and run the program from the program.

    A second options is to install the program under XP, and try running the program in compatability mode. (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/appcompat.mspx)

    Another option is to set up a dual boot system. Instructions can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306559. The downside of dual booting is that you will need to reboot your system to switch between operating systems.

    Hope this helps.
