Running W95 & W98 encyclopedias in Mandriva

Recommended Posts

I have some books that are on CDs for W95/W98. I have a dual system with WXP (which I rarely use). In order to run these programs, what would be the best way? I could install them on WXP and use wine, or use an emulator, which is what I would like to try. I'm using KDE4.

 

$ uname -a

Linux localhost 2.6.27.5-desktop-2mnb #1 SMP Thu Nov 20 15:20:32 EST 2008 i686 AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000+ GNU/Linux

I'd try using wine first and see how you get on. If it doesn't work, you could always make a virtual machine of Windows XP under VMware Server 2.x or Virtualbox - both are free to use.
