I have recently downloaded DOSbox and I don't have a clue about the DOS operating system used years ago.What I can't figure out is how to download,from a CD/ROM,onto the DOSbox program(or into a folder that DOSbox can recognize.Do I just create a folder in one of my files?Please help!
Using DosBox is pretty simple if you understand how it works.
First thing you should do is copy the files from the CD/ROM onto your hard drive. To make it simple, create a sub directory on you C: drive called c:cdstuff and copy all the files into that folder you want to access from DosBox.
Now, launch DOSBOX and mount the folder using the following command:
Using that command you should now have a C drive in Dosbox with the files in the CDSTUFF folder.
There ya go! Should be all good!
