Er... perhaps you'd be so kind as to mention exactly which two games you're talking about? I have a feeling that would sort of help the folks here assist you with your problem. ;)

The surest solution is always to have a DOS-partition to run old games like Dune and such... Of course, more often than not it isn't the easiest one so I leave it to the experts...

Doesn't Windows ME count as an operating system? :)

DOS partition: part of your hard drive is chopped of the main one and gets another drive letter. On this, you install MS-DOS. Complicated, not recommended if you don't even know what a partition is.

Activating the DOS core of Windows ME: Check this guide.
