– Built-in X support, includes IBM character set font.
– Graphics capability at the console with most compatible video cards.
– DPMI support so you can run DOOM.
– CDROM support.

DOSEMU is a user-level program which uses certain special features of the Linux kernel and the 80386 processor to run MS-DOS/FreeDOS/DR-DOS in what we in the biz call a `DOS box.’
