Get StarGen from GURPS working

Legally get your copy of DOS and Windows.
If you have them on your HD in a folder and need an ISO img

From Arch if you don't have it already get cdrkit, provides genisoimage :

pacman -S cdrkit
genisoimage -o DOSandWindows.iso MyFolder

Get dosfstools
Reboot

dd bs=512 count=2880 if=/dev/zero of=floppy.img
mkfs.msdos floppy.img
mount -o loop /path/to/floppy.img /mnt/floppy/

Make disk images until you are done....

Give up and use WINE

Enable Multilib
pacman -Sy
pacman -S wine dosbox lib32-ncurses lib32-mpg123 lib32-sdl
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/win32 winecfg

Install dosbox on Windows
Thanks Tim Cain!
