I’ve been looking at some of the UMPC’s that are out there and was wondering if you could turn them into a dos machine? For instance this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834131010) machine is cheap and it won’t most likely run anything in the XP era, but there are a lot of dos games that I would like to play again such as MOM, MOO 1 & 2, Darklands and some of the old gold box D&D games. I think this could be an excellent portible device.
I was thinking the same thing, the machine I linked to would run dos too fast. My main purpose for running dos on one of those UMPC’s was to create a portable dos machine. I currently have pocketdos for my pda, but that only emulates up to a 286 computer and they state that you can’t get it to run any faster. I can run MOO 1 on it but it’s very slow. I’ve run dosbaox in the past, but it’s always been a little quirky. I’ll have to check it out again. I do have an old HP Jornada pda with a 133mhz processor, is there any way to convert that to a dos machine?
I resurrected this thread in order to ask another question about the UMPC processors. The UMPC at the link in my first post uses an Intel A100 @ 600MHz, how does this compare to a Pentum 3 600MHz processor?
