DOSBox can also boot an actual DOS version (like dosemu always does),  
which improves DOSBox's compatibility a lot (eg testing function calls  
that are not supported by DOSBox won't immediately exit the emulation).

Unfortunately, at least as far as known to me, DOSBox's FS redirector is  
only available with the built-in DOS, not when booting a DOS inside it.  
For that usage, dosemu is better because it provides its MFS-based  
redirector for the booted DOS (using the lredir program).
