Running older games

  TN 13:15 25 Jun 09

I have unearthed a few old games I used to enjoy. However when I installed the first one (Blood) when I try to run it I get the message "The video device failed to initialise for full-screen mode" The start up of the game is in a DOS box and everything loads OK but I wonder what else I have to do. I am running a 1 year old desk-top with Windows XP and 1GB RAM and a 500 GB Hard Disk. Any help or advice will be sincerely appreciated.
