    I got the Carmageddon games and they can't run on today's modern PCs so I need to use DOSBOX. I never used Dos since I was but a youngin when it came out and my uncle had to start up Doom in it so I could play it. How do you install old PC games in this DOS emulator?

    You can simplify the whole process by installing dosblaster (sourceforge).
    It ads a "run game" item in the right click context menu so you can run a game from anywhere with two clicks.
    It even includes dosbox.
