Make sure that the DOSEmu configuration file doesn't have $_cpu_emu option uncommented (without #) and thats it.
    You don't need SIMX86.EXE.
The $_cpu_emu configuration variable does not exist in my dosemu.conf file. It is not mentioned in any documentation of my version of DOSemu (version I have not been able to find any reference to it in the on-line documentation for version 1.2 or version 1.4.
    It is on my dosemu.conf.

# Usage of cpu emulation: "off" (requires /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr= 0),
# "vm86" only (default) or "full" (vm86 and DPMI, experimental!).
# Use "vm86sim" or "fullsim" to use simulation instead of JIT code generation.

# $_cpu_emu = "vm86"
Are these comments your own or are the taken from your dosemu.conf file?
    Thats an extract from my dosemu.conf file.

If you still have problems, please send your .dosemu/boot.log file.

DOSEMU- is coming up on Linux version 2.6.13-15-default
----End of boot.log file-----

    In my boot.log I have the following 2 lines:
WARN: vm86plus service not available in your kernel
WARN: using CPU emulation for vm86()

Maybe thats a feature of DOSEMU 1.4 only and is not available in Try DOSEmu 1.4, it should fix the problem and run fine under a 64bit kernel without the need for SIMX86.EXE.

Thank you for your help.

    You are welcome!
    Good luck!
