    How to emulate a pc!
    New Pc Emulator For Free Osx And Panther
    (explication does also include other hardware and oses)

    I have tried out dosbox launcher 0.01. I used my first written code. My 700 mhz iBook 128 MB was not perfect on sound. This emulator is the first to have the pcfealing.

    http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1
    www.mac-emu.net

    http://www.holwegner.com/view/42 has a Mac port. Not sure how it works, but checking it out.

    Another thing, does anyone know how to mount a path in Dosbox. (What is a common path in OS X)
    dosbox launcher 0.01
    example
    make on your desktop a folder dosbo
    how to use it: /users/yourname/desktop/dosbo
    how to add files: put them in folder dosbo
    make a path in dosbox:
    google search freewarefile "edit.exe dos"
    copy that file and put it in folder dosbo
    c:\z:
    z:\dir
    You can there modify your autoexec.bat and config.sys
    z:\c:
    c:\edit z:autoexec.bat

    hhmmm... more PC emulation on Mac, eh?

    why would you want to emulate DOS? is that all this does, or can you install Windows on it as well?

    i'll be sticking with VPC for my PC emulation. i only mess around with small freeware apps like this for Neo-Geo emualtion.
