Sorry, but could you host it somewhere else? I hope I don't have to explain why I'd prefer not to have links to that site.

I understand. However, I don't have my own place. Sorry about that.

EDIT: Would VOGONS be acceptable? I'm thinking of posting the guide there as well.

There you go: http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=60848

It covers fairly basic stuff, but since it is a step to step guide it may be of help for newbies.

That is actually a great guide, goes not only through PCem, but also common tools used alongside. Good job :)

Did dondiego post this here?
I think i've found a bug, there's some kind of memory corruption when changing hardware configuration of any virtual machine, i suspect even just entering the menus. Stopping emulation it's not enough to prevent this, i need to close the emulator completely.
Doom always hangs on a virtual DOS machine with EMS, sound blaster 16 and cdrom after entering the config menus.
AMI 486DX-33 DYNAREC, 16 MB, SB16, HDD and CDROM. Core2 Duo, 2 GB, Win 8.1 32 bit.

I've already mentioned a similar bug prior to v14 (reproduced by starting a machine with a Pentium recompiler, closing back to config menu, then starting a 486)
