I won't get a virus if I download DOSbox from this site will I? Seems like lots of people are using it.

you'd expect an honest/usuable answer from the people who put the download there ? 😉
Feel free to try it with an online virusscanner.

However if you download it from www.dosbox.com you should be fairly save as that one has been downloaded 17,562,848 times so far.

dosgames.com is good.

It has all the legal/shareware/freeware games.

As for the rest, you must either pay for a copy or illegally download from abandonware sites.

If you take the latter option nobody will come after you, the FBI won't be showing up at your door, but it's a good idea not to mention it on VOGONS.

I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

We don't support so called abandonware here.

Go to www.dosbox.com to download DOSBox.
