I got the idea of putting together and selling a Linux PC with DOSBox and some DOS shareware installed. I already plan on having Doom, Dark Forces, Quake and Descent 2 demos included

1) What's the best way of making game-specific shortcuts on Linux?
2) What other shareware can I add here

Read the docs about dosbox command line parameters.
Once you figured that out, create a desktop entry with your fav text editor and put the command into the Exec line.

there are a ton of cool ms-dos games. look up a youtube compilation video and pick all the ones that look remotely interesting. you can't miss duke nukem 3d and blood though (although i prefer playing those with modern ports and mouselook)

Why don't you just use freedos then?

I've been off and on about adding Duke Nukem. May or may not be too vulgar, though sex being too much but gore being okay is a different conversation altogether

Because I also plan on adding Wine and maybe Steam. Besides, from a test with a bare bones FreeDOS USB, some games just won't run

>>1442110
Ha, should've figured there would be a big list

Or I should say some games won't run on newer hardware on FreeDOS
