CHAPTER [7]: What is needed to run DOOM?

*7-1*: What is REQUIRED to run DOOM?
        DOOM requires a 386sx IBM compatible computer running MS-DOS v3.3 or
higher, VGA (320x200x256) graphics, and 4mb of RAM.  The shareware version of
DOOM needs about 4.8mb of hard drive space.  The mail-order version needs
about 12mb of hard drive space.
        DOOM II requires a 486 with at least 17mb of hard drive space.  
I have seen it RUN on a 386, but it runs too slow.
        DOOM ports for the Atari Jaguar, Linux/X, Irix/X, Windows, OS/2 PM,
MacOS, SEGA 32X (Mars), QNX, FreeBSD, Solaris, and UNIX are also planned.

*7-2*: What sound cards does DOOM support?
        DOOM supports general MIDI, Adlib, Sound Blaster, Sound Blaster Pro,
Sound Blaster 16, Roland Sound Canvas, Gravis UltraSound, WaveBlaster, Pro
Audio Spectrum 16, Sound Blaster AWE-32, and compatibles.

[7-3]: What game controllers does DOOM support?
        DOOM supports keyboard, mouse, joystick, and trackball (functioning
as a mouse).
        DOOM also supports the Gravis Gamepad and Logitech Cyberman.
