Does anyone read anymore?

As their site says, the Public release of DosBox will only run 386 "real-mode" games or earlier. "Redneck Rampage" requires a 90MHz Pentium to run it. Since that's well beyond a 386, you can expect it to crash dosbox every time.

You could always try it with one of the (completely unsupported) CVS releases of DosBox, but I can already tell you that's a waste of time.

Even if it could run on DosBox, performance would be a "slideshow"...and a very slow slideshow at that. Unless you plan to get a processor that runs faster than 3GHz, forget about running it with DosBox for a good, long while.

A better idea would be to try running it natively with VDMSound, the major hang-up there is audio quality and (possibly) your video card.
