Thanks for the background info.  What I asked about, however, is  
which directory to put the dosbox.conf file.

DosBox was installed automatically by Synaptec (I'm using PCLInuxOS)  
and there seem to be pieces of it all over the machine in various  
directories.  I didn't find a DosBox directory.  On a mac, the proper  
location for DosBox is in a users preferences folder.  I tried to  
find something corresponding in Linux, even tried putting it in  
various places, guessing.  Nothing's worked.  So...where do I put the  
conf file?

And since you brought it up, what is the ~/.dosboxrc file?  Never  
heard of it in my searching the DosBox forums.  What does it do,  
how's it made etc?
