That will work fine, as long as the games you want to play are at least five years old. Games made for modern PCs running XP are going to have a hard time running on Win98, if they run at all. Win98 has not been an officially supported OS for some time. So you may have driver issues, DirectX issues, and security issues to deal with. Not saying it won't work, just be ready for some potential headaches.




He's not wanting to play old games in MS-DOS, which is what DOSBOX is for. He wants to run modern games without the "Windows overhead".
I guess it was good idea at first, but right now it aint lookin to good, thanks for clearing it for me everyone!
