The package xfonts-dosemu might be what you want (if I'm understanding
you correctly).  It contains the following fonts:

vga          -dosemu-vga-medium-r-normal--17-160-75-75-p-80-ibm-cp437                                                   
vga11x19     -dosemu-vga-medium-r-normal--19-190-75-75-c-100-ibm-cp437                                                  
vgacyr       -dosemu-vga-medium-r-normal--17-160-75-75-c-80-ibm-cp866                                                   
vga10x20     -dosemu-vga-medium-r-normal--20-200-75-75-c-100-ibm-cp866                                                  
vga-ua       -dosemu-vga-medium-r-normal--17-160-75-75-c-80-ibm-cp1125                                                  
vga10x20-ua  -dosemu-vga-medium-r-normal--20-200-75-75-c-100-ibm-cp1125
