Hooray! Everyone can play our older games using DOSbox - even Mac, Linux and Vista owners.
Now that MicroSoft Has Broken DOS...
First go to the DOSbox site and download the version for your operating system. (Windows of any flavor is the first on the list, Mac is there too). Go ahead and run the installation. You will love this program! All your old games will work. And it is free (open source).
Then, double click on dosbox.exe. For the version as of 4/2007, you'll find it in C:\Program Files\DOSbox-0.70 (e.g. run C:\Program Files\DOSbox-0.70\dosbox.exe) This assumes you have a PC.
When you start DOSbox, you get a Z: prompt. Now you have to tell it where to look for your games.

There you go!
