Is there any way to install a game with a CD for Windows 98/ME/2000 on my computer which is Windows XP?

If you have a Windows 98/ME/2000 installation CD you can run such system on a virtual machine like Microsoft VirtualPC (it is free) and use it like an old PC inside your real computer. You can use VMware as well, but that one is not free.

Anyway some old games run on Win XP by setting compatibility mode directly.

Thanks for the help.  Used the compatibility mode setting and it works.
