    mount d /Volumes/xxxxx

    replace xxxxx with the name of the CD under /Volumes [It is the name that appears under the CD logo on the OS X desktop].

    Appears to work under (variant of dosbox).

    I use dosbox, and that's how (post above this) I get to my external hard drive. Old school tetris FTW.

    I installed Boxer on my MBP and much to my surprise I was able to get Tango Schematic Capture and PCB layout software to work, at least in fullscreen mode. Although the DosBox documentation doesn't mention it, their VGA driver also seems to support VESA modes so I'm able to use 1024 x 768.

    I never could get those to work under Parallels/Win2000 because Tango did some uncool things with mouse cursors or something.

    I don't need to use those programs very often but it will be nice to be able to use them on my MBP instead of an ancient Dell running Win98!

    Thanks for mentioning Boxer.
