So I wanted to play an older game today. So I figured I better install dosbox and play my game on linux. Heres how you can do it:
sudo apt-get install dosbox
extract your game files to a directory on the computer. I placed mine on my desktop in a folder.
from terminal run:
type: mount h: /path/to/game/directory
Now in dosbox type: h: or whatever you chose for the drive letter
then run your game exe or bat file
