DOS box on a Mac
Posted on 2013-06-13
I have a customer that has asked the following question. Could anyone help?
I’ve installed Dosbox on a Mac, and it seems to work well so far.
For our DOS programme to work, we need a C: drive, and a D: drive (which is our shared network drive).
In Dosbox, I’ve managed to create a C: drive by mounting it to a folder that I created (DOSBOX) in the ‘Home’ folder on a Mac, using the following command:
MOUNT C ~/DOSBOX
It confirmed that the following path has been mounted successfully: /users/steve/dosbox
I now need to create a D: drive.
I’ve mapped the network drive (our nas server) using the cmd+K shortcut, and added it as a login item to my profile, so every I startup it automatically looks for this drive, and appears as a shared resource.
The problem I have, is that in Dosbox I can’t MOUNT the D: drive as I can’t tell it where to find it (ie with a text command etc).
Can you through any light on this? as in Windows it would be easy because we simply map a lettered drive to it, and Dosbox understands where to find it, but I’m struggling to do this with a Mac
