MS-DOS is... I wouldn't talk, It's too long story
So let's get started!
Windows, Mac OS or Linux(Linux has VMWare too)
Intel VT or AMD VT technology in your processor(required)
(don't worry, all new laptops and computers have it)
VMWare Player or another version(VirtualBox will not work,because MS-DOS floppies are unknown for it)
MS-DOS 3x floppy installers: <-- All disk images are original(imma pirate ;))
EDIT: I fixed Norton Commander links, sorry :P
Maybe Administrator rights
If you ask, yes, this is my dropbox with my files in that picture
Step 1: Creating a Virtual Machine
Create new machine and set type to other -> DOS
You can see settings on picture, except floppy
If you're a blind, read configuration:
Processor:same ### NB! Turn off binary translation! or your computer temperature will rise! ###
1GB Hard disk SCSI
CD\DVD: auto detect
Floppy: Use MS-DOS 6.22 1#
Step 2: Starting MS-DOS...
Installation is easy. If you have fast computer, installation(and maybe games,programs what you want to run) will be fast(and too fast).
If it asks floppy 2#(or 3#), press Ctrl+Alt and Right-click floppy. Click settings and browse for Disk 2#(or 3#)
Save settings(click OK) and continue
If you want to use Norton Commander(NC), do that same thing again
Step 3: Drivers and more!
CD-ROM: http://db.tt/ZI8crDgQ #instructions are in archive file
How to install them?
download this boot disk: http://db.tt/KWAc6Blv
and boot it
use Folder2Iso : http://db.tt/UGBwhV3K #or google it
Create folder like "CD-rom" and put cutemouse and stuff to it
open Folder2Iso and make iso from that folder
Open created ISO as vmware cd-rom
go to your virtual machine, what is booted from boot disk
Type R: and copy things to c:\dos
Add those lines,what are in instructions to Config.sys and Autoexec.bat
Now reboot your VM(Virtual Machine -> Send Ctrl+Alt+Del)
Now you have working CD-ROM drive
