What version of Turbo C and date.
As I remember tc 1. was dos based. At around 4. it was a win 3.11 or win32s.

The options are dual boot to dos or window or get bochs, qemu or dosemu 
to work and use it as a virtual PC with your choice of OS installed.


for the first 2 you will need to use mtools to transfer files in and out 
of the emulated harddrive.

Once you have simulated harddrives and have a working bochs it is easy 
to let qemu use the simulated install and it will emulate a little faster.

The turbodebugger should work under bochs and qemu. It may not work 
under dosemu. The other drawbacks on bochs and qemu is the number pad 
keys don't seem to work.

I have used bochs but now use qemu to run a cross compiler for an 
embedded micro that only runs on dos 6.22 as it uses protected mode 32 
bit instructions not allowed on win 95 dos.
