Dosbox Help?


Can you help me run the game One Whole Unit of Blood. I've never used Dosbox nor Dos but I heard the game could run on Linux using Dos. I downloaded from Gog.com if that helps. I've already mounted my C drive and put the Application in it.

Thanks

Now you need to navigate to that particular directory on your C drive and run the exe file. Use the "cd" command to get there and list the files with "dir" so that we can see what files are there.

I found it. But it fails and says possibly invalid or corrupt IRQ can you help me with that?

EDIT: I can play the game but only if I turn the sound off. Before it said that it was only using 14 MB of ram could this be it?
