Yes, there's DosBox just like everyone uses for Windows. There's a Mac version too. Google for Dosbox and you'll find the homepage easily. Should be the first link. Go there, click Downloads, and then download the Mac OS X version of DosBox 0.65 and then below that, download an OS X frontend to make configuring DosBox a lot easier. DosBox should work with most old Dos games, but like the name suggests, it only really works for Dos games and not Windows versions of games. There are Mac emulation sites that list all of the popular emulators. One that used to be excellent but isn't updated as frequently is . Another one I think might be , but if it's the site I remembered, then they changed how it looks.

Thanks Maxor! Ive download DosBox and had successfully mounted my c: (my Games folder). Is there a command to run an .exe file in a sub-folder from there? I'm a bit of a tech newbie as u can tell........

Ive also checked emuscene out and found someone's link in the forums to Q (http://www.kju-app.org/kju/) which also seems to be a PC emulator. It allows you to easily choose which operating system you want to use and saves it, kind of like creating profiles. As soon as I created a new 'profile' though (I chose Windows XP as the OS) it was unable to boot my hard disk and subsequently wouldn't let me do anything more.. Gah.. :?

In dosbox, just type in the name of the .exe and before you know it you're playing the game. Have fun ;)
