How to get WordPerfect 5.1 working under Vista?

Wordperfect 5.1 (for DOS) doesn't work without modification under Vista. How can I get it to work (as well as possible) under Windows Vista?

"Run it inside DOSBox. That should solve your problems.

Their emulation is quiet decent, they have solved problems with EMS/DOS4GW/whatever etc.

I think it should run any DOS application pretty much OK."

Maybe DosBox does work. It works fine with most Dos Games and Programmes. It's free and still beeing improved http://www.dosbox.com/
