Summary: i8086/DOS/VGA software emulator for running old games
DOSBox is graphical application that provides rich programming emulation
of Intel 8086 real-mode, SVGA and DOS with XMS/EMS (but no DPMI!).

This is very useful for running old good DOS games written for PC/XT/AT
that's impossible directly on modern Pentiums, SUN's, PowerPC & etc.
At least PII 400MHz is required for comfortable running.

Full list of tested games successfully supported by DOSBox
is published on the site.

Run it as following:
  * dosbox /path/to/game.exe
  * dosbox /path/to/gamedir
  * dosbox /tmp/old-games/ugh.exe
    ...maps given directory to drive C: and start given EXE/COM/BAT-file
  * dosbox /usr/local/games
    ...maps given directory to drive C: and start built-in COMMAND.COM
