Go to http://www.dosbox.com

Download DOSBOX for Windows.

Run the downloaded file.  DOSBOX will be installed.

Dump your InstantTrack files in a directory c:\ITRACK

Go to START/ALL PROGRAMS/DOSbox-0.73/Configuration/Edit Configuration
A text editor box will open. At the end of the text file in the [autoexec] section, edit the file so it reads as follows:
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.
mount c c:\itrack

Save the file and close the editor.

On the desktop, rename the "DOSbox 0.73" icon as "InstantTrack"

Click the icon.
