Previously, I posted a screencap of a classic DOS-based PC Game called Dune 2. I was able to run it on my Eee PC using a nifty application called DOSBox. Here's how to set up and run DOSBox:
- make sure that "deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stable main non-free contrib" is included in your "sources.plist" file.
- at your Terminal window, issue the command "sudo apt-get install dosbox" and it will show that it dosbox will install a couple of files, press "y" at the prompt.
- after the installation routine, type "dosbox" at the Terminal and it should run a DOS window. In that window, you can issue several command but the most important command, IMHO is "intro mount" because that command will allow you to run your DOS games.
