Has anyone tried?

I might..

I have searched but I can't tell what version of DOSBox DOSXbox v13 is based on.

Latest versions of DOSBox can run Windows well. This may be the best way to get Windows on XBOX.

Is there a port of libsdl for xbox - there's the basic requirement of DosBox. Unless you run Linux on top.

Answering my own question. Just found libsdlx at the usual places. But not sure if DOSBox works in that.

You think that would work better than porting the latest/CVS release of DOSBox?

I will probably try booting win95 today or tomorrow on DOSXbox. I don't have the resources/time to compile a newer port.

You can run them using Bochs... but it is slow and useless as Windows can't recognize any of the Xbox's hardware... Xport did say in his last release that if the DOSbox core was updated it would run A LOT more than it does currently, but no one ever updated the core as far as I know.
