Update 1: Blog article about shortcuts is now up! See below example:

Update 2: Added note from youtube user: Example clarification from a user if you thought my video was confusing:

“I just got this thing working for Toonstruck on disc – this tutorial is pretty confusing if you don’t speak ‘computer geek’.

Heres what you do. Create a folder in your C: drive (your hardrive) call it ‘game’. and find out what drive your CD is in (mine is E)

Open DOSBOX and TYPE mount e e:/ -t cdrom hit enter and TYPE mount c c:/game hit enter and TYPE e: press enter, then TYPE dir and then just TYPE the corresponding .EXE file: (setup, install) Click enter and BAM. Simple.” – Courtesy of anakinthehutt

Per the website:
“DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms. DOSBox has already been ported to many different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X…

DOSBox also emulates CPU:286/386 realmode/protected mode, Directory FileSystem/XMS/EMS, Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA graphics, a SoundBlaster/Gravis Ultra Sound card for excellent sound compatibility with older games…

You can “re-live” the good old days with the help of DOSBox, it can run plenty of the old classics that don’t run on your new computer!

DOSBox is totally free of charge and OpenSource.”
