Dosbox and XP [Basic howto]
Installing and running Dosbox 0.73 on XP
Download "Windows 0.73 Win32 installer" from http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1
Run the installer. Accept everything.
Next important step: create a folder to use as virtual C:\ in dosbox.
Open 'computer', browse to c:\ and create a new folder named oldgames
So you have: c:\oldgames\ in Windows.
Now open your start menu, open dosbox menu items, open configuration,
click on edit configuration, will open your dosbox 0.73 config file in notepad.
*If you want multiple personalised conf files read the dosbox readme to know how to proceed, but for most users the default config file will do fine*
Scroll the whole way down to header [autoexec] and add:
mount c c:\oldgames
Save and exit.
Run dosbox now, if you did it all correctly dosbox will start up with a C:\ prompt ready.
If you have a partitioned harddisk, you also simply can create an 'oldgames' folder on your D: partition (or E: F: ...).
Adapt your mount lines accordingly.
Dosbox 0.74 is released, that's the one you should have now.
Almost everything is the same, except you'll find the dosbox conf edit in 'options'.

If for some reason you want to keep an older version of dosbox besides 0.74, no problem, they won't interfere with each other.
==> But do NOT use the ol'dosbox conf files with 0.74.
