I obtained my copy of GTA from Sold Out Software. Their CD installs a DOS version and a Windows version. It's the DOS version you want. It will install to C:\GTA\gtados. Under Windows 2000 and XP, GTA has problems accessing the CD, so you need to apply the NO-CD patch. The patch can be found here. It's an archive; unpack it, copy the file GTAFX-C.exe into the C:\GTA\gtados folder and double-click it.download page and click the link to the latest Glidos_vXX.exe file, save it to disc and double-click it to start the install process. The installer will put a shortcut on your desktop, unless you tell it not to. Under Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows XP, you may have to install Glidos using an account with administrator privileges. I haven't experimented with this yet, so I'm not sure.
Under Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP you may need to run Glidos from an account that has administartor privileges.
