Hey, you are in LUCK, did you know that the old DOOM engine is now
FREEWARE?! That means that all the source code has been online for years
now, and since then people have come out with GREAT Windows compatible
versions of DOOM.
Of course the files that contain all the levels are not free, but what
you can do is install these windows versions of Doom where you have Doom
Collectors Edition installed, run the new DOOM version and you should be
able to play all the DOOM games you own in a windows compatible
There are even versions of doom that you can put on your PDAs, or other
handheld devices. Let me see if I can find a version to get you started.
Ooo, look, a Google search for DOOM for Windows brought up the following: http://doom.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_pl..._on_Windows_XP
(Lots of links
to new Doom Engines as well as how-to setup instructions) http://www.doomworld.com/doom4win/

Hope that helps you out a bit. I have DOOM running on a hacked PSP: http://psp-news.dcemu.co.uk/doompsp.shtml
PSP is a great homebrew device if you're lucky enough to be able to
figure out how to patch the firmware. Too bad Sony keeps trying to stop
the hacks from coming out, and too bad the PSP battery sucks ass.
