16-bit software in Windows XP?

danielq
Hi,
Is there a way to run 16-bit software correctly in Windows XP? I can get the software to run by editing the properties of the excutable and instucting Windows XP to run it as a Windows 98 application.
The problem is the software was designed to talk to hardware on the ISA bus and doesnt use drivers. I think it talks directly to the memory allocated to each peice hardware on ISA backplane. Is there a way to get the software to work with the hardware?
