You can try the emulator dosemu, to install it just open a terminal,
(Apllications > Accesories > Terminal) then type:

    sudo aptitude install dosemu

I hope that this help you and work :D

You can try the program dosbox or the build in dos-thing in XP called cmd. To launch it press WIN R and then write in cmd. Now you have a small dos-a-like thing.

Can you help with this problem?
