Thread: 16/32 bit linux

  1. #1

    Default 16/32 bit linux

    Alright im trying to run some 16 bit games (not Dos) however, I do not have windows 7 ultimate (for the visualized XP) Id rather not buy a whole new licence to use these. I do not want to install a whole new OS to my system.

    Is there a Flashdrive Bootable Linux that could run 16/32 bit windows/Mac games?

    Or hell a bootable(flashdrive) windows would be fine to, im fine with pirating.

    Why not just have mutiple os on your main drive. You can select the os when the system boots. If you do not select one you can define a default option after the timeout.

    Yeah, I don't know if it works with every single 16bit app but it does work with most... What are you gonna do tho? are you gonna use a flash drive? if you are gonna do it that way I recommend unetbootin it downloads the distro for you and then install it to a flash drive

    Goto to System => administration => Synaptic Packet Manager => Type 'Wine' in the quick search box, right click Wine1.2 and click on mark for installation => click on 'Apply' at the top, and you are done
