1. Make sure you have dosemu installed

2. Change /etc/dosemu.conf to match your system and needs

3. There are several ways to boot dosemu. One that is secure and
   therefore a good start is to boot from a dos-system-floppy.
   I tried this first, and when it worked good, I just made an
   image of the floppy:

   dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/var/lib/dosemu/bdisk

4. Setup dosemu.conf to boot from your bootimage.

5. Type 'dos'

6. There are lots of other ways to do this, but this worked for me.

Hmm.. Why am I writing this? There are lots of readmes for how to
install and setup dosemu! RTFM! :)
