The actually code has been relatively easy to port across and I already have it running on my A1200.
I'm not sure if DosBox has ever been ported to Atari before but if we can get a 68k core developed then it would obviously make it much easier for someone to port it across to this platform.

The majority of the keys are mapped correctly on the Milan's PC keyboard.
Not sure how old my version of DosBox, it works and I installed a ran an ancient version of Tetris. It runs but very, very slowly.
