You need a dos emulator. I searched briefly and could not find one for 50 points, but with some whole-hearted effort you should be able to find one.  the good news is:  most emulators are made cause someone says, hey, i need one, so when they're done to share them for free with people, so chances are you'll be able to find a free one.
I had no trouble finding a dos emulator for Linux, so UNIX must be out there SOMEWHERE!

hope this helps, Terabyte
