Old Windows games & Dosbox

For those of you who didn't know...
Dosbox runs in Linux also
Clicky

In Fedora its as easy as
Code:
# yum install dosbox
and Yum will take care of it for you.
Then just go to a terminal and type
Code:
dosbox
The old Dos command line will open and you have to mount a drive.
for information on Dosbox commands just type
Code:
intro
It will explain how to mount a drive

I have a folder called "dosprogs" where all of my old dos games are and I've created custom .conf files and shortcuts to automaticlly mount and start the game. This works great in Windows, but in Linux its harder to create the .conf file.

So far I can play many old games like: Doom, Doom 2, Hexen, Duke Nukem 3d... and many more

If you are allready using Dosbox post some of your successfully installed games. Or if you are going to try it, let me know how it goes....
