    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
