Got old DOS games working in Debian lemme tell you how:
 
DOSBox was just what I needed to get old games like DOOM, Pac Man, Galaga, etc to run "natively" with no necessary porting. Download DOS game and unpack game. Run DOS box ... go to directory with game.exe and use pwd command to get the path to the original DOS game.exe file. Then go into the DOS box and use
Code:

Z:\>mount C <path to game.exe>
you got the path using pwd.
now use good old
Code:

Z:\>C:
and finally
Code:

C:\>game.exe
ENJOY!
