Perhaps, perhaps, maybe when pigs get wings and fly around I will.
As said, if they need more help than this they best stay on Windows or MacOS.

Of course there always is: http://ubuntuforums.org/
All the help they need there, even for total Linux n00bs .....

Arrow Ubu 11.04 update.

UPDATE.
*******

Ubuntu is now on ver 11.04, it's been a while already, means it's mature enough to install it.

Looks outstanding, feels good, and of course: steady as always.
For dosbox, not much is changed, follow the 10.04 rules and all will go swell.


Maybe some CD game tips:
Don't use your CDs but create an image with the excellent Brasero, ISO or BIN/CUE created with Brasero are fully dosbox compatible.

If you have no idea about the differences between ISO and BIN/CUE always go for BIN/CUE, works always....

Use imgmount in dosbox.


As usual, if you need more help than this, get your ar*e back on Windows or Mac ......

Nope, not needed.

-> Ubuntu software center
-> input dosbox in search field
-> click "install".
-> done.

It's all in the first screenshot.

That's it, _r.u.s.s., why do you always have to complicate things..... ???????

He's a Russian. He might even have inherited the gloomy and purposeless trousers of Uncle Vanya
