Not sure about locations for Dos but if you want to run the games on current PC's then Dosbox is a great emulator to use.

DOSBox, an x86 emulator with DOS

Works very well, some games you have to play around with the speed a little to get them to play at the original speed but for most you can just start them up and go for it. I have a large collection of old dos games that i still play all the time.

I was going to say...I think I still have my DOS 6.22 3.5" discs around here somewhere. I could zip them up and e-mail them.

But, Tonschuh there has the hook-up.

If you have a microsoft MSDN (or access to it) you can still download DOS disks as well.
