    Then open a terminal window in knoppix, cd to dosemu and type ./dosemu. After you accept it will give you a dos prompt. The next thing i do is use the 'edit' command to edit the autoexec.bat file. I add an "lredir" command to mount my windows c drive ( ie, add this line "lredir c /linux/fs/mnt/hda1". Then exitemu and then restart ./dosemu to be sure it mounts my windows drive as c:\.
    After that i run ./xdosemu to run my old dos games from my windows c drive to take advantage of my graphics card (nvidia) acceleration via linux XFree.
    This is works for me anyway.


    BTW I am trying out Kanotix but cant get nvidia driver installed because the install scripts written by Fabianx are not there.
    Have you been able to get it into full screen?

    I am able to get a full-screen disply using Ctrl-Alt-F , but only in xdosemu. I believe there is a way to set the full-screen parameter as an argument when running dosemu, but I dont use it and it is explained somewhere in the dosemu docs. Ctrl-Alt-F allowed me to run descent in full-screen in xdosmeu.
    Also note that i use the dosemu & freedos binaries. If I try to compile the source using Knoppix live cd it wont work because it makes some files read-only.
