I did follow your guide without "skipping steps or looking at other guides in between". I also had several friends look at it, who agreed with me whole-heartedly and thought it was a complete waste of time. They were right.
Unless someone has foreknowledge of many of the applications you mention (and don't explain) the guide is completely useless. (IF IT EVEN WORKS).
YOU LEAVE STEPS OUT AND ARE VERY VAGUE IN MANY AREAS.
Your antagonistic response was very predictable.
In hindsight it really isn't worth the effort to play 20 year old games on system that hasn't really been supported in half a decade. Especially considering they are emulatable on any 233 MHz PC with Neo Rage.
