Is there a way that I can execute a Linux command from inside DOS? For
example, "RUNLINUXCOMMAND" [lpr ~/Dosprog/roses.jpg], where
"RUNLINUXCOMMAND" would be the dos command required. Thanks in advance,

Hey Bob,
Don't you need, you know, Linux, to run a Linux command?

Chris: Guess I didn't include enough details of the question. I run Ubuntu 8.04 and then Dosemu 1.4.0.0. My printer, a HP Officejet K80xi works fine in linux for both text and graphical files (I just enter lpr filename and either file prints fine with no further input on my part). After I enter FreeDos, I can only print text files. If I could enter some magical command from within dos that executed any linux command, the problem would be solved. Soooo, my question is "Does such a command exist?".
