I didn't mean to recommend that gaming is super important here. It's
presumably not. Just saying, if they can install DOSBox (plus whatever
libs) later, it couldn't hurt.

Well, I weakly tried two different programs (Dr. Track, Mpxplay), but
neither one could find the sound card, even with some simple
fiddling/setting of BLASTER. So I dunno. It's probably a more
complicated problem to solve.

Honestly, I wouldn't majorly worry with it yet. Sound is a mess and
(relatively) unimportant. I would consider almost anything else as
higher priority, to be completely honest.
