dosemu for Debian
-----------------

The dosemu has been preconfigured for you with minimal options.
You can just run xdos or dos to get a dos prompt.

Please be aware that the configuration files for dosemu are in /etc/dosemu
and that /etc/dosemu.conf is not used.

lredir
------

The number 46 in errors like this

Error 46 redirecting drive D: to LINUX\FS/PATH

is the value returned by int 0x21 with AX=0x5f03.  Similarly, the number in

Error 46 cancelling redirection on drive D:

is the value returned by int 0x21 with AX=0x5f04.

ezedit
------

ezedit has been removed because it is not DFSG-compliant.  In particular, it is
only free for noncommercial use.

hdimage vs. hdimage.first
-------------------------
Our upstream maintainers have renamed hdimage to hdimage.first and we're
following suit.  If you're you're using a hdimage that you built yourself then
you can keep using the same name as the provided hdimage.first file probably
won't interest you.  Otherwise it is advised that you modify /etc/dosemu/conf
to use hdimage.first instead.

FreeDOS
-------
Initially dosemu is configured to use FreeDOS.  If this does not suit you, the
command /usr/lib/dosemu/setup-hdimage ma help you building a desk image without
FreeDOS.

Since the FreeDOS kernel now accompanies the official dosemu distribution, the
fdos package is now obsolete.

Please note that lredir does not work with FreeDOS yet.

Suidmanager Support
-------------------
Dosemu supports suidmanager allowing you to avoid the hassle of always
having to reset the permissions.

do 

suidregister /usr/bin/dos root root 0755

to have the suid features disabled across updates.  Although this is no longer
recommended.  Please refer to /usr/doc/dosemu for an explanation.
