I create a custom user's desktop and whatnot and put that into /etc/skel.  That
way all new users automatically get my custom desktop.

I also have a symbolic link in ~/.dosemu/drive_c to a directory under /opt
where I keep the common databases that all users access through the dos

I have discovered that if I have a ~/.dosemu/drive_c/link in/etc/skel,
then dosemu somehow can't find the symbolic link.  "cd c:\link" in a new user's
directory.  "cd c:\link" gives me a "chdir failed" error.

If I delete ~/.dosemu from the user's home directory, then run dosemu and allow
it to create its own ~/.dosemu, then put my batch file and symbolic link into
that directory, everything works perfectly.  And I have no idea why it would
make any difference, but it does.

Do you perhaps have a similar problem?  What happens if you remove ~/.dosemu
and then run dosemu?  Does it work then?
