    I was using aDOSBox and was unable to get Windows 3.11 to setup correctly...I'll post a video if you guys want...it's easier to have the video explain it better than I could.

    I've only heard of it running Windows 3.0. Not saying 3.11 won't work, but it *may* not.

    What a bizarre thread anyway...

    I havn't tried on my ally yet, but on my Slide it works alright. Its really hard to use the mouse tho...or at least i still havnt figured out how to get it to not stay clicked using the touch screen.

    Anyways, I installed windows in dosbox on my computer and then moved the files to my sdcard, then added the mounting and c:\autoexec.bat lines to dosbox.conf, and everything just worked after i typed "win".

    I made some other modifications to adosbox.conf that seemed to help with stability. Changing the core to simple and cputype to 486 seemed to make things crash less.

    I'm sorry, I've been wondering this for a few days now and I just can't help but ask...

    Why??? Why would you WANT to run Windows 3.x on your Ally. It's like putting a Yugo engine in a Ferari or something. You can't even claim it's for the coolness factor because Windows 3.x was not that cool!

    I'm just sayin' !!!
