At the moment, for computers with Windows, possible solutions include from simplest to hardest:

1. Vista 32Bit with Compatibility set to Win XP and the UAC turned off (User Account Babysitter...super annoying part of the security of Vista), as stated by annhwi in this thread. To turn off UAC, follow one of these tutorials. Please note that UAC although annoying is a security measure, it is preferable not to turn it off while browsing the internet. Ideally, you should turn it off on a non-admin user account that has no internet access.
2. Use Vista's partitioning tool (see this link), then install an older 32 bits Windows OS in the new partition, like Windows 95, ME, 2000 or 3.1 (well, OK not really 32 bits wink.gif ). Then M 1.1.
3. Install a virtual machine (VMware, VirtualBox or Virtual PC 2007). Then an older Windows OS. Then M 1.1. See the complete walkthrough to install VirtualBox, I know there are other complete tutorials for example for VirtualPC on the world wide web.

A different track is to use DOSBox on Linux OS. This should presumably also work on Vista, but nobody reported success just yet. A tutorial with screenshots on installing DosBox with Windows 3.1 (required) can be found here.

For Macintosh OSes, see this short tutorial. Remember that you probably have a legitimate install disk of Windows lying around which can be used instead of that Windows 95 VHD mentioned in the tutorial.
Reason for edit: Edited the URLs, changing them from mordor.uni.cc to dejenol.com
