Plus you can use it to run the original voodoo drivers for windows 95 - 98 for hardware accelerated Direct 3D games. Here's a gallery of 3DMark '99, using the DirectX 6 benchmark in dosbox: http://imgur.com/a/sBwz3#XbibR You can download the compiled test executable (dosbox_mingw.zip) on this page in the forums: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=25606&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=340&sid=c77daab3a3561f5a676e32a91b2c97f5

Ok I enabled scripts for fsdn.com like it said on the options page, but now firefox is taking up 30% cpu time and it shows that there is 50% usage on one of my cpu cores. My machine is a AMD64 x2 4200+ running at 2.2ghz 2gig's ram Winxp sp3, FireFox version 2.0.0.14 (yes it's an old version I know), but that constant cpu load shouldn't be happening.
