After a bit of effort...

	Pirates in Realmspace works in Win95...

	...provided you do a certain things.

	I tried reinstalling it on my machine, and here's what I did:

1)	I used the RUN command on Win95, and installed in with the NO
SOUND option.  I don't miss the sound, but you might.

2)	After it installed, I closed the DOS box and restarted the machine
in MS-DOS mode.  Changed the directory to SPELLJAM and ran the game
normally.

	The game worked normally!  Like I said, it has no sound, but it
doesn't matter to me.

	AND I didn't need a boot disk or change the config.sys file.

"The difference is in viewpoint:

	Science is a way of talking about the universe in words that bind
	it to a common reality

	Magic is a method of talking to the universe in words that it
	cannot ignore

The two are rarely compatible."
							Neil Gaiman, 1991
