The unit is not linked to DOS, it is pure hardware but yes, you might need
services that Linux does not allow for user programs. I'd experiment with
it, anyway, it might turn out that those port writes are not that important
after all (and I suppose, you can read ports on Linux without problems). I
cannot really tell because it was more than five years ago that I had
written any program on Linux but I still think it is worth a try.
