<h1>MS-DOS &amp; Software</h1>
This page contains download links for a very old Microsoft operating system so
that it can be preserved -- on this corner of the Internet, anyway -- for
anyone who is curious to tinker with the first versions of Windows or who just
wants to take a trip down Nostalgia Avenue.<p>
The operating systems here are distributed as floppy disk image files (with an
.img extension). If you actually have a floppy drive, you'll have to flash
these images onto floppy disks. If you just want to use
<a href="">VirtualBox</a>, it can make use of the
floppy image files directly.<p>

<h2>Hardware Drivers for VirtualBox</h2>
These are some hardware drivers for DOS and Windows 3.x that are known to work
with VirtualBox's emulated hardware. Drivers include:
<li>CD-ROM driver</li>
<li>DOSIDLE to make MS-DOS stop consuming 100% CPU</li>
<li>WQGHLT to make Windows 3.x stop consuming 100% CPU</li>
<li>SoundBlaster 16 as a CD image (requires the CD-ROM driver)</li>
