If you have issue, I can do short instruction on how to get it to work with WHDLoad.

Actually, here are instructions - on positive side, it does not require floppy switching.

Download and install FS-UAE.

Download and place it inside download folder in FS-UAE - WHDLoad preinstalled game: http://whdownload.com/games/Update-2..._v1.1_1548.zip

Start FS-UAE, first import kickstarts from main menu (Drop down >> import kickstarts...) followed by import game files. You can update game database for nice screenshots etc. If you do this, in settings go to game database and change to show only available games, or you will see them all.

Now, when you select Dune II from game menu, it should show WHDLOad v1.1 1548 in drop down menu with versions. Just click start to start emulation and enjoy the game.

If you like to get better experience with Dune II, I suggest you find DOS version of the game (it's not that hard) and try Dune Legacy.

Here is little info from their website:

Dune Legacy is an effort by a handful of developers to revitalize the first-ever real-time strategy game.

It tries to be as similar as possible to the original gameplay but to integrate user interface features most modern realtime-strategy games have like selecting multiple units


Features
  • Open source and cross platform
  • Modern display resolutions
  • Modern RTS controls like selecting multiple units and right-click commands
  • Original campaign with Harkonnen, Atreides and Ordos
  • Super Dune campaign with Fremen, Sardaukar and Mercenary
  • Multiplayer support
  • Map editor
