Eagle of Fire What you need to do with DOSBox is unzip the games as usual, then mount the correct drive in DOSBox using the right directory.

The Fifth Horseman DOSBox does not - and neveer did - automatically create directories for you to use as a default C mount.
Creating it is entirely up to you, as is naming it. I recall there were some issues with write permissions in Vista and Win7, so the directory should either be placed in your "My documents" directory or on a different partition.

DOSBox 0.73 where should I extract to?

I used to use abandonware about two years ago and recently decided to do so again. I recall being able to extract zipped folders into the CDrive with Winzip but today I can't even find the DOS folder itself. Has something changed between versions? I checked the sites guide to running abandonware and they confirm my original approach as valid.

Thanks in advance.
