Have you tried using a program like DOSBox to run your game? If not, that would be the first place i would go.

Maybe you can try to make a windows 95/98 or windows xp machine on virtual pc.
I had the same problem once when playing Revenant(also windows 95/98 game). So I made an Virtual Windows XP machine and the sound was back.

Hope this will solve your problem too.
