  3. <h1>MS-DOS &amp; Software</h1>
  4. This page contains download links for a very old Microsoft operating system so
  5. that it can be preserved -- on this corner of the Internet, anyway -- for
  6. anyone who is curious to tinker with the first versions of Windows or who just
  7. wants to take a trip down Nostalgia Avenue.<p>
  8. The operating systems here are distributed as floppy disk image files (with an
  9. .img extension). If you actually have a floppy drive, you'll have to flash
  10. these images onto floppy disks. If you just want to use
  11. <a href="">VirtualBox</a>, it can make use of the
  12. floppy image files directly.<p>
  13. <img src="/creativity/articles/doswin31_thumb.jpg">

  24. <h2>Hardware Drivers for VirtualBox</h2>
  25. These are some hardware drivers for DOS and Windows 3.x that are known to work
  26. with VirtualBox's emulated hardware. Drivers include:

  28. <li>CD-ROM driver</li>
  29. <li>DOSIDLE to make MS-DOS stop consuming 100% CPU</li>
  30. <li>WQGHLT to make Windows 3.x stop consuming 100% CPU</li>
  31. <li>SoundBlaster 16 as a CD image (requires the CD-ROM driver)</li>
