Is it possible to partition your hard drive & install & use windows 95/98 on it or put it on an external hard drive. reason I have found a couple of old dvd games run on 95/98.

Yes its possiblke but hard work to install older windows versions

probaly easier to run in a virtual machine

or have you tried installing and running the games in windows 98 mode

I agree with the suggestion to run a virtual machine for W98/95

W98 cannot use more than 512MB of RAM so by using VirtualBox, or similar, you can define the amount of RAM available to the new W98/95 virtual pc.

You might run into problems with graphics - some games looked for a specific graphics card or chipset but a little experimenting might get round this.
