Question playing "DOS" mode games in XP

I got myself a few games that only play in DOS mode. As many know XP doesn't have it. Does anyone know a program that imitates DOS mode for older games.
-thanks-

Go to www.abandonia.com

There is a program on that you can download from there called DOSbox and a guide on how to use it.

There is also quite a few old games that you can download from there. Pretty sure it's all legal too as these are officially abandonware.
