      Certainly.  But don't expect it to work without setting up the game first.
      I've just done so (to refresh my memory) and here's all I needed to do
      (after a false start in which I ran INSTALL.EXE native - still OK but messier):

      1: Expand distribution files (to, say, C:\programs\retzork)
      2: Run the enclosed INSTALL.EXE with VDMS and let it autodetect
         (sees Creative Labs SoundBlaster on IRQ 7 with DMA 1)
      3: Run RTZ.BAT with VDMS -> et voila

      All other tweaks and niceties (like ticking the 'Close window on exit' option in the VDMS launcher properties and moving shortcut somewhere more convenient) are optional

      Just loaded RTZ last yesterday with VDM.  I used inferno's page (http://home.earthlink.net/~infernofilecabinet4/XpSetupsP_T/rtz_setup.htm) which was a big help.  So it's working,
      BUT - half the time the voices echo or stutter (think Max Headroom).  Not sure how to handle this.  Anyone have any ideas?
