Generally, I recommend creating a directory called "DOS" on the root of your SD Card. You can do this by plugging your phone into your PC and mounting it.
After that, copy your DOS games into the folder you just created. For example, if you have the following games (Doom, heretic, frontier and elderscrolls arena), you might create a structure like the following at the c:> Prompt:
And any other games you want to copy. Remember, DOS is limited to 8 character file and directory names.
Now once you have your games on your SD card folder, its just a matter of starting DB Turbo and accessing your games. By default, the c: drive will be mounted to your root sd card folder. So if you followed my instructions above, to access DOOM, you would type the following:
cd /dos/doom <press enter key>
Then you would either run the game by typing doom.exe
or you could setup the sound/controls by typing setup.exe
More information can be found on the DosBox Wiki
and on my FAQ page
. Once you've mastered starting games via commandline, all that typing can get tedious very quickly, at which point you'll want to try the free (optional) DosBox Manager add-on.
Hope this very brief tutorial helps!

For those of you who were trying to run Windows in DB Turbo, apparently, someone over at this RootWikiz thread
managed to get Win95 up and running on his CM9 Beta powered HP Touchpad with full DX6.1. He also posted some pics of him running C&C and Office 95 in Windows!
I have no idea how he did it or what image/config he used, but he mentioned later on in the same thread about how he might post a video with instructions.
