Bash to Auto Launch a Program????


I was wondering how to do the following.

Upon opening a bash shell for the user, I would like a program to automatically launch.

More detail....

I want users to be able to login via ssh and have dosemu launch automatically for them so they do not have to type in dosemu. This way when they log in they are at a dos prompt, or at least in a couple of seconds they will be at a dos prompt.

Any help would be appreciated.
