all right went trough everything to install dosbox from your tutorial..altough mine was the 0.65 version and the 0.63 as explain in your tutorial
So i installed it with all the files you said cdrive downloads..and the rest

I mounted everything just the way you shown
So i started dosbox..and my screen is not the same..instead of appearing C:\> its Z:\>
Tried to enter mkdir anyway..but it said ''unable to make .''

hi again

all right here's everything as it appeared when removing ''cls'' and starting dosbox


Z:\>mount C C:\DOS\CDrive
Directory C:\DOS\CDrive doesn't exist

Z:\>mount D D:\ -t cdrom
MSCDEX : Mounted subdirectory : limited support

Drive D is mounted as cdrom

Z:\>C:
Drive C does not exist
you must mount it first

There was some other giberish thing at the begginning concerning sound and other things but didnt seem important
if it is i'll write it to you!

thats it..and dont know if it as anything to do..but my game which is ''Gemfire'' is not on a cd... its in a file on my C:
fifth horseman sorry i dont get what you are asking

Thanks for answering keep the good work

That's the source of your problems. You're trying to mount a nonexistent directory.

In what directory do you keep your DOS games? The best idea is to point Dosbox there.
Ex, if I want to mount directory "Dosgames" that is placed on partition labeled F as Dosbox' emulated drive C, I'd do the following:
mount C F:\Dosgames

Unless you prefer sticking to the tutorial, in which case you have to create a directory named "DOS" on your drive C and then inside that directory another, named "CDrive".

You mean you unpack your DOS games directly to your drive C: ?
Or do you have a dedicated subdirectory for them ?

If it's the first, then I strongly suggest you change that habit. When your games are in a single directory (which is not your drive C, it's far easier to manage and run them in DosBox.

Once you have made a directory to put your games in, move the appropriate games there.

In DosBox:
mount C C:\[the name of your games directory]
