    Okay, So I've got a new Dell Dimension 3000 desktop computer w/ Windows XP and I tried to install the original The Sims game on my computer. After I click install, a few seconds later a message comes up saying something like:"file not suitable for MS DOS and Microsoft Windows applications, choose close to terminate the application." I've visited the support website that tells me that I am probably missing the autoexec.nt, command.com or config.nt on my computer and it gives me directions. I followed EVERY direction up until I got to the part about a %SYSTEMROOT/system32 folder. I can't seem to find that folder anywhere. Everytime I try to expand the command.com file it says something like: "can't open input file" or "no destination specified" I've tried every instruction and or direction to try and fix the problem, but everytime I try to install the game it tells me the same thing. What could I possibly be doing wrong? Does Windows XP not support The Sims game at all? ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!!
