Honestly, unless you're REALLY into tinkering with old PC hardware there isn't much point. DOSBox covers all DOS games & software and wrappers like dgVoodoo2 cover early DirectX/Glide stuff. I'm not even a super hacker by any stretch but I can just pull a random win9x game from my redump set and get it working on WINDOWS TEN. In most cases what you do is install the game, install the latest update (find it on google), get a no-cd crack for the said update, copy dgVoodoo2 libraries, and bam, you're done.

As for the DOS stuff it's even more simple. Just mount an HDD, mount a CD-ROM, run setup.exe, speed it up, navigate to the game folder, play the game.
