    trouble running classic dos and early windows games

    I've recently dusted off the old collection of classic games run under windows 3.1 and dos mode. I've found the dosbox which works great for the most part but I've had some trouble running the games designed for the windows part. I keep getting an error message "the system file is not suitable for running ms-dos and microsoft windows applications." is there an emulator or something i should be looking for?!
