Yes, using dosemu, which lets you run msdos under Linux. You do need a
bootable
dos disk for it to work though.

In most cases yes, try dosemu.

1. Failed to execute binary (UML); binary compatibility broken?

Hi,

I've tried to run some specific executable in 2.5.67. This
executable worked fine with earlier[1] 2.5.x and 2.4.x kernels,
but it refuses to run with 2.5.67. I thought that it's temporary
problem and waited to 2.5.68 in hope, that it will be fixed.
But it won't work with 2.5.68 either.

[1] I did not test it on every earlier kernel. It have
    stopped working somewhere in 2.5.6x series.

This binary is old Linux version 2.4.18-19um as UML executable.
It produces:

------

Details of my host system setup are here:

If I understand correctly, UML binary is ordinary executable.
So if it is unable to start, evidently something very important
is broken.

UML's kernel config attached.

Please CC me.
