I am in need of some help regarding an old IBM game and running it on Dosbox.
The issue I am having is that it will not get past the CDrom test speed screen in both iso and cd form.
I would really like to get this game working if anyone has any suggestions.

What game is it? Make sure you have mounted the drive correctly (with the -t cdrom switch). See if there is anything about it on the compatibility list as well.

I've yet to come across a game that the 0.7x versions of Dosbox don't work flawlessly in, after appropriate tweaking.

I also want to play this game through DOSBox. Did you ever figure it out? I realize this thread is very old.

1) Start Virtual PC in DOS mode and install the game;
2) Export the installation directories (\Legacy\eri) to the host and place them in your DOSbox's "Emergency Room" directory;
3) Make sure your CD-Rom drive is set up under DOSbox;
4) Put the original (orange) game CD into your CD-Rom drive;
5) Start DOSbox, type "cd Legacy <enter>, cd eri <enter>, eri;
6) Enjoy!
