I downloaded DOS4GW to be able to play some nes games, but I don't know what to do with the file.  When I type DOS4GW.EXE it says the syntax is wrong, that it is "DOS4GW <executable.xxx>".  So I typed that in and it says file not found.  How do you load and/or execute this file?

You need to find the name of the executable you wish to launch and substitute that for "<executable.xxx>", for instance my privateer game is played by executing a file name privtr.exe. So to launch it under DOS4GW you would need to type:

DOS4GW privtr.exe
