Dosbox is a dos environment emulator, including all the hardware.  It
emulates all the old PC video modes (cga/ega/vga/tandy/etc) and sound
cards (tandy/sb/gus/adlib/roland/etc) and the x86 cpu.  It is of course
much slower than dosemu since it emulates everything, but it runs on any
architecture, and given the speed of modern PCs and the expectations of
dos software, speed should not be a big problem.
