Sub_title: Windows 95 Games
 

I would like to be able to execute my collection of Windows 95 games on my Puppy 430 system. Is there a particular library or PET which I will need to load to accomplish this? My grandchildren would really like to be able to play the Candyland game that requires 256 color mode, plus they really love my old Disney Magic Artist and Hercules games. I would like to not be forced into having to purchase new releases.

ITAmember thanks for the link to technosaur's Winetricks etc. Can anyone point the way to the best method to use both WINE and virtual cd-mounting (e.g., FuseISO/ FuriousISO, AcetoneISO) for those old games that require periodic disc access, or would running virtual cd-mount software from within WINE be a better option?
