first start 'dosemu' - shell (sh/bash) script, which perform some
initialization and preliminary things. At end this script starts
'dosemu.bin' - self DOS emulation engine. dosemu.bin then initialize
and run some instance of DOS (usually FreeDOS). There is not necessary
have DOS on FAT partition, it may be on some native Linux partition too.

Dosemu uses some configuration files in '/etc/dosemu/', it has other
files in /usr/bin/, /usr/share/dosemu/, /usr/share/doc/dosemu/,
/usr/lib/dosemu/ etc. These files and their precise location You should
obtain from your package system - command 'rpm -ql dosemu' give it on
my Fedora system, which use RPM package manager. Ubuntu has IMO 'apt'
as package manager.

This trick uses fact, that binary can detect with which name run and
behaves depend on it.
