You won't be able to play Descent, my friend, that game is really power hungry, and it needed a very fast 486 or a Pentium in order to perform correctly. DOSbox v0.74 (not ported to the DC so far), is reported to perform like a 386SX on a 350mhz Pentium II... More or less the raw computing power of the SH4 200mhz RISC CPU inside the DC.

I have the v0.60 DOSbox version for DC somewhere around, and i gave it a go a couple of years ago, but i wasn't able to correctly configure the emulator in order to use a "hard disk", so i gave up.
