You can probably find some "geek" websites with patches and guides googling for "new life old games".

DOS BOX is the best software for dos games. It simulates a dos operating system for the games, and it takes barely any space.

D-Fend Reloaded is a great frontend for DOSBox, the popular DOS emulator.* It lets you install and run many DOS games and applications directly from its interface without ever touching a DOS prompt.* It works great on XP, Vista, and Windows 7 32 & 64-bit versions.
