Well, as I said, I'm running 98, not 2000 so I wouldn't need an emulator. Also, I'm clearly using the DOS based "Collector's CD" not the "Collector's Series" which is the Win95 version.
All I need is to make a boot disk on a 1.44 floppy that will load DOS, enable EMS, and activate the SET BLASTER code and the CD ROM. I used to know how to do that back 12 years ago. Anyone remember how to do it?
