Hi Jim,
if You are using 64-bit distros, You should definitely try new Dosemu2
version - there is now new KVM CPU virtualization mode
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel-based_Virtual_Machine ),
that makes the running of DOS programs on 64-bit Linux OS very fast.
So fast that there is no difference between 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
(And KVM support is Bart's contribution to the Dosemu project)
I would also like to thank the whole Dosemu team!

I use Dosemu/FreeDOS to run my DOS accounting program, sometime since
1.0 version (around 2000) - for almost twenty years!

Regards, Franta
I hope the Fedora will have a better init and no binary logs
