Use DOSEMU instead. The Linux console and xterm windows all support
ANSI escape sequences, possibly well enough for your apps.
DOSEMU requires MS-DOS, I think.
If you don't have a copy of MS-DOS handy, you can use FreeDOS
BTW, I contributed my NANSI.SYS driver to the FreeDOS project last year.
Dunno if that gets used under DOSEMU or not... but it was fairly
compatible with the ANSI.SYS that shipped with MS-DOS 3.x.
