Interesting I've never tried to get the Windows version of DosBox working in
Wine. However, I can report that the normal OS X version of DosBox through
Boxer finds the joystick (at least the games I run in it seem to recognize the
joystick's axes). :)

Well ... best of luck and btw ... happy new years. :)
