Hm... just had a look on the web, and it mightn't be possible in Vista. On XP I just press F8 when the computer is booting up (when it says starting windows, or something like that), and one of the options is Command Prompt Only.

You can then run it from there...

Someone else might be able to advise on exacly what to do (if at all possible) when VIsta is the Operating System....

Speedball 2 - Amiga
Street Fighter 2 - all sorts of formats
Super Stardust - Amgia ((probably mainly for the tunage...boom boom boom boom!) The ps3 one isn't too shabby either)
Rez - Dreamcast.
EA Ice Hockey - Megadrive (when animated fights turned into actual fisty cuffs with the brother)
Tekken 5 - ps2
James Pond 2 - amiga/megadrive
Super puzzle bubble bobble - Sony Ericsson K800i
How to be a Complete B*****d - zx spectrum.
