But "mount c c:/ -t cdrom" would prevent DOSBox from messing up the host operating system.

You still need to mount a folder as c drive 😀

In other words, follow that guide you show a snippet of. If I see correctly it tells you to create oldgames and mount that before you mount a cd-drive

Use a dedicated folder for dosbox that you mount. DO NOT MOUNT YOUR C ROOT AS C IN DOSBOX!
Follow the guide more closely
