The instructions my game has talks about installing using MS-DOS (The game pre-dates Windows 95!!!) and when i look in the CD the setup file has an icon that looks like a cog. When i click on this it opens a window which looks a bit like DOS but closes straight away. Any idea how i would go about installing this?

Try rightclicking on it, properties, see if you have an option for Compatibility Mode. Use Windows 95 CM if that's the lowest.

Yet it will only work if your harddrive file system is anything else than NTFS.

Or try http://www.the-underdogs.org/guidedos.php
