Adding Memory XMS

Hi, I'm a stranger to DOS, and I've looked around, but I've found it difficult to find how to do this, and don't quite understand the directions in the answers that I have found.

Anyways, I recieved a copy of the Seventh Guest, and everything goes find until I attempt to start the game at the command prompt in DOS (an emulator on Windows). The command tells me that I do not have enough MXS memory available to run the game.

The game booklet tells me that I need 1MB of XMS memory, and my memory status tells me I have 941056 bytes.

How would I go about adding XMS memory?

I know this question has been asked multiple times, but I need someone to explain it to me in easier to understand terms, please. Thank you so much!
