A little of both.

Why? try lredir (I think) and map the mounted CD rom from LInux to be a
dos disk. :-) It can be done in autoexec.bat I thnk or you can change the
dosemu config files to map a linux dir to a drive letter= or even an
entire device (I think)

Yep, see above.

Well.... I have been able to start and join IPX/SPX games with DosEMU but
the loss of data was pretty high and as games progressed from DOSEMU the
net games would become less stable. I seem to recall setting up some
TCP/IP stuff using a DOS PPP system and some funky things with Linux, but
this could possibly just be a dream I had. It has been a while.

(May have used KA9Q or another PPP/IP like thing, but dont have them
