IIRC, Hitchhiker's was on one "Masterpiece Edition", and there was
another cd which had a partly redundant but more complete selection of
the older games.. seebs must have that one.
I first played HHG on my neighbor's Atari 800. There are emulators for
those old systems in pkgsrc, and there exist DOS programs for reading
those old disks. The atari800 emulator works, but I haven't gotten
around to trying to read any disks on the PC yet.
