I have been experimenting with getting old Fidonet software working
under GNU/Linux (Debian unstable on a PII-266), and after finding dosbox
too slow, tried dosemu (1.4.0+svn.1828 from Debian unstable) and things
are almost working how I want them. The BNU 1.70 FOSSIL loads and runs fine.
There are a few things I haven't yet figured out how to do:
1) map C: to /scsic in dosemu.conf
2) have an ANSI.SYS driver working for a program that needs it.
3) get Kermit for MS-DOS running. At present it locks up solid. I used
it to talk to the modem outside of the Fidonet mailer, and also as an
external protocol under the Maximus bbs program.
What debug options should I try for such a program?
