XP has a Virtual Dos Machine but it doesn't work with a lot of Dos programs properly

Troubleshooting MS-DOS-based programs in Windows XP

Virtual PC is more more likely to work with your Dos program better.
The current version is Virtual PC 2007 but Virtual PC 2004 may be better suited to use with your Dos program.

Install and run the program in compatibility mode.

The service pack for xp did remove the old autoexec and config so you may need to re-create it and put back any special settings.

Converting the old system to a virtual machine is an option too. A p2v app might work.
