Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Think that i will try dos box. I created this thread because when i googled i found many emulators and instead of the usual advertising gimic "ours is the best" i wanted personal opinions because the number of people using a particular emulator to me says more than any amount of advertising.
I tried duke nukem in dosbox but it ran too slow but in qemu with dos 6.2.2 it ran lighting fast. It might be because of powernowd. Quake ran at decent speeds in qemu. dosbox has a ways to go. It works for simple games. but graphically intensive it chugs.
What quake version do want?
For quake1 or quakeworld there are modern Linux/*BSD clients, try fuhquake, zquake, ezquake, fquake (maybe the best for newcomers) and JoeQuake for single player or speedrunning.
For quake2 there's quake2forge, quetoo, etc.

Does anyone know if that would work?
