Hi.I want to play some of my old win 95 games but my present laptop too fast.I dont mind buying an old laptop off ebay but it is confusing to which laptop should I get.For example one game gives the requirements as :- Pentium 200,operating system windows 95/98.CD rom drive 8X speed,32 MB of Ram,video 3DFX soundblaster compatible.Perhaps someone with the knowledge could suggest what type of laptop to get.Many thanks Philip.

I use virtual box.....I dont use w98 though..I mainly run xp on it..and try some linux distros

http://www.virtualbox.org/

I like it......you might like it better than virtual pc...W98 isnt supposed to run very fast on it though but you can give it a try

Are you attaching an iso file...or using the actual drive.
I dont have virtual pc on here..I use virtual box..so I can only guess what is going on there.
Does it start to load the w98 file at all...or do you get errors?
