You could just buy it and download original ISO from somewhere. Problem solved.

nope, it will not work from GOG, you need a "modern" machine for that.

I have successfully copied over the game files from a GoG installation to my real 486. I just ignore all the files with lower case characters, long names and obvious modern Windows files. It has worked great for a few games like Master of Magic, Wing Commander 1, pinball illusions, etc. I don't see why it wouldn't also work for Tie Fighter
