Ubuntu 9.10 and DOSBox

Just a quick update: on Ubuntu 9.10, the fabulous DOSBox 0.73 can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Center, which means it's no longer necessary to go through compiling source code for the latest (as of this post) version of DOSBox! You may want to change (in your dosbox.conf or dosbox-0.73.conf) the mixer settings to "rate=44100" and the "prebuffer=50" to avoid stuttering sound, but try and see what happens. I haven't tried setting up General MIDI to work with it yet, but I'll post here if I do.
