Most cards have Soundblaster emulation on the chips.

The only other option is for DOSbox.

Its been a long time since I last had to use DOSbox, but you have to make sure the game is set up to use the soundblaster ports, most older dos games had a setup.exe file that would do that for you.

Then run the game.

Should be fine, if you slowed cycles down it should read from the drive fine.

What i did was download them on steam, rather then having to fiddle with old cds and such, steam version works just fine.
