Try Wine. It is a Windows 3.1 emulator for X. I don't know if Quark
Express runs, but many useful apps do.
DOSEMU is for dos, for the most part. I've heard that people are able
to run OS/2-Win3.1 and Win95 OS/R2 under 'Dosemu', but that is a different
story. AFAIK, normal 16-bit Win 3.1 doesn't work. Wine works though.
You don't want to run 'Windows' anyway... you want to run individual
Get a DOSemu/Wine/DEXE combo. You may be surprised how well it all works
