Pentium Pro and 16-bit programs

I have an office where the users have pentium pro pcs. I have been asked to install the DOS version of Foxpro onto one of the PCs so they can run our accounts system. They are currently running Windows 95 and Office 97. Someone has told me that Foxpro or the accounts system will not run as Pentium Pros will only run 32-bit applications. Is this true?

Its possible, though unlikely, that a DOS FoxPro version will not run on a win32 system. If it doesn't this has nothing to do with the Pentium Pro processor
