Don't know about this particular one. I've tried Doom, Heretic and
Descent just to see if they work, and they do. Of course, there's no
sound support yet... (Though by kludging around with port permissions you
can get adlib/SB FM music)

Win 3.1 somewhat runs. I tried it about a year ago and could fire up eg.
word and excel (though they didn't run for very long). This is, btw, NOT
recommended by the dosemu team ;)

I wouldn't bet on it. See above.

Nope. For this, see wine. At least the 32-bit freecell should work ;)

At least for experimental use of win 3.1, yes. The modules come with the
dosemu source.

exitemu (you have installed the DOS utilities that come with it to the
DOS drive, haven't you? ;)

Also, you can change virtual consoles and then kill it...
