Unhappy Execute freedos commands from puppy linux

Can I execute freedos from puppy linux? I've just started using linux and I don't know any of the commands or its capabilities. I have freedos in a separate partition and I have grub4dos but I don't know how to configure it. Frugal Puppy linux boots fine from the grub4DOS.

You need a dos emulator like dosbox, dosemu(old) or use virtualization app like qemu, virtualbox to run freedos. Freedos commands can't be run straight in linux.
