Try "wine <dos-programm.exe>" on a well configured system. Some programs
will run, but the focus has not yet been on graphic intensive programms.
While dosemu requires an underlying DOS (with the need for a license when MS
Dos is used) Wine also reimplements the DOS environment.
Dosemu had some big changes in the last time. It should work however.
