Set up a shortcut, on the Cmd Line I use this:
C:\Windows\Command.com /k mode co80
You may not need the switches, depends upon your particular computer's BIOS and settings.
Then select "Advanced", then MS-DOS mode, then "Specify a new MS-DOS configuration."
REMDEVICE=C:\DOSDRVRS\CDROM\ECSCDIDE.SYS /D:CDROM01 (my CD-ROM doesn't work in DOs, to play PW you won't need it anyway.)
SET BLASTER=A220 I2 D1 T4
If your Mouse.com is in a different directory, substitute that for the above.
I don't know about the other suggestions. I know what works on my computer, the above gives me 630,528 free bytes in conventional memory, more than enough to play PacWar
When you are finished playing, I believe you will have to "EXIT" from DOS, if you three-finger reboot, it may go right back to the DOS Mode.
I don't think any of the settings will cause a problem with your computer, but one never knows. This is what works for me.
I play computer games. Kicking posteriors is something in the past for me. To each his own,
Hope this helps,

Hey, Bing---I'd appreciate the help. Do any of the previous postings sound like they would work? I'll have to download the game again. I tried to run the game from the shortcut at first. Later, tried with the blue box pac.exe, that's I got into trouble.
If, I can get pacwar to work on my system, I'll kick some butt.
