Smile Dos based games in XP...

Hi all.

I have a problem and dont quite know how to solve it yet and I would appreciate any help that i can get.

Recently i bought the original Xwing CD, however when I got home i found out that this is a Dos based game and therefore wont run under XP. I have tried changing the compatibility to Win 95 but this doesnt work, it keeps telling me i do not have enough 'EMS Memory' and cannot run Xwing without it... : how can i change these settings so i can play this game which used to give me hours of dubbed sound effects and talking to people like i had a steel bucket over my head.

All joking aside though is there away of using a command prompt outside of windows XP as in 95/ 98 and others you could always restart in Dos, and as everyone now knows you cannot do this in XP.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
