Haven't tried running FPC in dosbox.
As dosbox is aimed at supporting DOS games (and certain applications),
their emulation may not be good enough for FPC.

If I wanted to test FPC for DOS, I'd probably use a FreeDOS virtual machine.

I don't know if there is a DOS crosscompiler for Linux like there is a
Win32 crosscompiler, perhaps that could be useful as well too.

Just for interest: are you trying out FPC for DOS for fun or do you need
to create/support DOS (not Windows) programs?
