I'm not sure I understand. IIRC, it appeared as "/media/sf_rugxulo"
(or some such), and I made it appear read-only. Also, IIRC, DOSEMU
typically makes D:\ the Linux partition host, so you can access some
files there.

Sound isn't exactly important to me, but obviously in games it is nice
to have. Not sure exactly how huge DOSBox (with all libs) would be,
but that's presumably a better answer, at least for gaming.
