Do what most people do, create a multiboot PC. Partition the HD, put DOS on
one partition, and put Linux (and another Linux, and/or OS/2, and/or Windows,
and/or another Linux, yada) on as many partitions as you please. Most such
installations use Linux's Grub bootloader to chainload DOS or Windows, which
makes them act as though they were the only OS on the PC while booted. If
booted to Linux you have the option to run the DOS installation in a VM
without leaving Linux, but it's certainly not required to use virtualization
if you have multiboot. Maybe these will help:
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
