Default 16bit game not working, WHY?

ok i have this old game its called sim ant. I love playing this game, although now on my new computer and amd64 3000+ i cannot play it, it pops up with a box saying this:

16bit MS-DOS subsystem
The system is not suitable for running MS-DOS and MS-Windows applications. Choose Close to terminate the application.

any way to get this game working??? thx
