You may not have gotten a reply because the title does not make sense.....

Do you want to access a DOS machine from Linux? Or Linux from DOS?
Are you on a network? If not, how are the computers connected?

Assuming that you have the right connection, my hunch is that ftp might be the simplest method. There is Samba for connecting **Windows** to Linux, but I have never seen anything on DOS. (Haven't looked either... )

Give is more details, and you'll get more help.....
