dosbox: A x86 PC emulator for running old DOS games1

DOSBox uses SDL to emulate the PC hardware required for running old DOS games. This includes a 386 processor, an S3/Trio video card with some tweaks to allow for older display hardware like the Tandy, a Sound Blaster Pro, the PC speaker, Tandy 3-sound, CMS/GameBlaster, Disney Sound Source, and MIDI. DOS emulation is integrated. It is possible to mount local directories as drives inside the emulator.
