hey all,

i really want to run Snipes on my eMac ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snipes ) but I'm having some trouble getting DOSbox to work for me. I can't manage to mount a C drive. I type in



mount c/users/sammy



but get nowhere. I assume I'm doing something wrong, and there aren't any great guides for the mac OS X version. Can someone share their knowledge? Someone who knows a lot more about this than me, but can tell me what I'm doing wrong.



Also, is DOS case-sensitive?

    No, it is not.

    I managed to get a game to run with it but it was much slower than Virtual PC so I ditched it. You can get Virtual PC on ebay for next to nothing (£15) so it's not worth bothering with DOSbox. You don't even need Virtual PC 7 because it's basically a rebrand after Microsoft bought it so version 6 is fine if that's all you find. Just get one with Windows included if you don't have it or download freedos:

    You can even use Q (based on qemu) if you don't want to buy Virtual PC and install freedos on that:

    That's news to me. I always thought that it was.
