Trying to switch over from OS/2 to Ubuntu via this neat little eeePC.  My primary
word processor is XyWrite, which runs fairly well under Dosemu for the most part.

* In WyWrite I am used to using Alt-Backspace (to delete the previous word) -- for
so long, it's now second nature.  Searching "dosemu alt-backspace" keeps yielding
references to "ctrl-alt-backspace" which isn't what I want.  Finally I found that
someone says "Alt-Backspace and Ctrl-Insert... are not available for the BIOS (at
least in DOSemu!)"  Is this true, and if so, is there any chance a future DOSemu (or
Freedos) will overcome this?

* I'd also like to remap some of the default Linux/Dosemu keys -- for example,
Alt-F2 is very useful in Ubuntu for running a command, but while in Dosemu I'd
prefer to let XyWrite handle it.  Is this possible?

I just tried run small freeware DOS program "ScanCode Show" (
from from Simtelnet) which display scancodes - as You can
see on attached screenshot, both "Alt-Backspace" and "Ctrl-Insert" are
captured by scode.
And when I disable (by gnome-keybinding-properties prog) GNOME default
binded keys ALT-F1, ALT-F2, ALT-F4, ALT-F8,... then these are available
for DOSEMU programs as well.
Then I think there isn't any problem use these combinations in Your DOS
