You don't need to run vgaon. All you need to run graphic apps in
dosemu is configure your video card/monitor in dosemu.conf. It's
somewhat painfull, but you need to do it carefully, and then you'll be
able to run graphics under console and X.

/etc/dosemu/conf, in the new versions...

Yes, edit /etc/dosemu/conf :^>
Sorry for the joke. I hope you can get it.
