FreeDOS is a free DOS-compatible operating system.

Software Santa's note: If you just want to try it out and play a few old DOS games with it FIRST (and not have to install it on some antique hardware) ... a copy of FreeDOS AND a copy of some old DOS games Come Along With a downloaded copy of JPC! When you boot your
JPC: you'll find FreeDOS available from the Disk Image menu!
