Thanks for the quick replies, i will try to be quick in responding lol.
Dell 630m Laptop
Pentium 1.8GHZ Single Core
Integrated Intel 915GM 128MB Shared
I have tried using Dox Box and Scumm VM and some games work and some dont eg Fallout 1 doesnt load and Fallout 2 has some crazy hallucinogenic colours all over the screen. I will try Virtual box and see if that does the trick.
I am also interested in using VMWare but was unsure of which version to use and was worried that maybe my laptop wouldnt be able to cope with it due to the specs.
I am also tinkering of getting 160GB HD and just splitting into 4 partitions (7, XP, 98SE) ad using the other one to store music, etc incase i ever need to format a drive.
All new vid cards only have drivers available for XP +... and given a couple more years XP support will probably begin to fade as well. It actually surprised me when I had sound with DOSBox on this laptop... given that it uses a Realtek HD audio codec. Win 9x is simply not supported anymore... you will not find drivers for any modern hardware. Have you tried compatibility mode in XP for some of your older Windows stuff?
