I think that linux-msdos is supposed to be devoted to Linux
DOS emulation, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

It looks like the directory didn't have a --linux-.--- file to
begin with. There's more to come...

That's right; UMSDOS doesn't by itself sychronize files that
aren't already listed in the --linux-.--- file. The proper fix is to
run the "umssync" command in the current directory. Now, I had
trouble compiling the UMSDOS tools (version 0.8) under Red Hat 3.0.3
(GCC 2.7.2, libc 5.2.18), which is exclusively ELF. Are there any
updates planned for these tools?
