I haven't in awhile, but you can try using MAME.

i want to play SNES and NES what do you recommend. MAME on thier web site seem to be dos based. i have a nephew that would , and I for that matter, at playing old Super Mario Brothers. i am wanting to setup up a slackware machine that runs those old games to display on my TV i have an old ATI radeon 7500. i assume those old arcade games dont even need 3d acceleration.
another thing where do you all get the roms for those games?

i thinks its kinda crappy if nintendo makes a Fuss on old console games that they dont even make anymore like NES games. they cant still be making money on them. the only way i can get a a hold of an old NES system is to rummage for one on the net and hope to god someone hasnt converted it to a ITX PC. i could understand if the game i want to play is a console version of a game like XBox or PS2 but super mario bros. the first one. yeesh these people make enough money as it is without trying to get money out of a system they stopped making 15 years ago.
