How can I get Daggerfall to run in Dosbox? I was never any good at running things in DOS.

I guess thats what your asking.

I tried chdir C:, but it didn't work.

Man, I know I'm old...it never even dawned on me before that today's gamers might not know how to get a DOS game started...yikes. Hopefully you don't have any autoexec.bat or config.sys issues to deal with in DOSBox, those were always the main issues with getting DOS games to work right. (Those files were where you set you drivers and enabled "high" and "extended" memory, which are relevant only to 16-bit operating systems.)
