I've been trying.   Got it to run through the install but i need to figure out how to increase the disk space to install the whole thing and/or figure out the "have the wrong cd inserted" error message.

- Morrowind is utopian... moreover it runs only under Windows DirectX environment.
- Daggerfall maybe... but I think that it should run very slowly under DOS-Box.

The XL engine is not open-source, unfortunately...

A free binary or freeware version does not actually mean the source code is available and without source code porting isn't possible.
