Would it not be better (at least under Linux) to simply allow the normal 
OS load process to handle this? Since Linux can be configured to 
directly call Wine to run DOS/Windows binaries, the would allow them to 
run normally, plus if you wished to replace the DOS program with an 
equivelent native program it would still work.
