Please help!

Right now I`m playing (trying to play) Settlers 2 Gold on Linux Ubuntu using Dosbox.
(I wanted to play the old S2G missions again, which is not possible on RttS).

...but it runs terrible! There are great lags, even on the beginning of the game, especially when scrolling a map.
Is there anything I could change?

Or is my computer too slow (CPU: AMD 2000 MHz, Radeon Xpress 200M, 2 Gb RAM)?
