Problems running DOS based programs/games...

I'm not sure if it's XP, or if it's the Radeon, but every time I finish playing a DOS game, for the sake of argument, let's say WarCraft II, the screen gets funky.

I would have to adjust my resolution, then adjust it back for it to return to normal. I thought that by reducing my resolution to 800x600 before playing that it would prevent it, but it doesn't.

Another thing, WarCraft II recognizes the Audigy for sound effects and music, but it only plays the sound effects. The midi music doesn't load. My computer plays midis, but just not in WCII.

Any reasons why?
Setup a dual-boot operating system.

1: Windows XP
2: WIndows 98SE

You will only need 2GB for Win98SE and you can use it just for the old dos games, and for benchmarking as 98SE gives slightly higher scores.

If you need any help setting this up then Lemme Know.
