Frotz!

The game files, despite the .dat extension, are zcode files that work in any interpreter. You can find a wide range of zcode interpreters for all platforms at http://www.ifarchive.org/if-archive/interpreters-infocom-zcode/ - I recommend Windows Frotz.

Nope. Z-code story files (the data files which contain the games) are portable to almost any system. You just need the right interpreter; there are tons available at the IF Archive. I usually use WinFrotz. I think it came before Win XP, but it ought to work.
