Well I hate to tell you but winnt 4.0 does not run on dos like all the other windows os do. Win 2000 and XP are both winnt 4.0 based so it is quite difficult to run a game on dos when there is no dos to run it.

There is a dos executable, but you can also just run it in compatability settings, or ... I might find an article on how to run dos games on windows xp.
