DOS graphical application is not running on DOSEMU


I have installed Linux 2.6 kernel RHEL 5.3 server edition, Upon we installed DOSEMU 1.4.

We are unable to run the dos graphical applictions over dosemu.

One sample DOS EXE for drawing a circle using Graphics library routines in C fails to start and displays the following error

BGI Error: Graphics not initialized (use 'initgraph')

Please let us know any dosemu configuration setting to tweaked to run the DOS graphical application

Have you tried running the same application under DosBox?

Don't remember much Borland, but that message seems to indicate an error as well in the program that you are trying to run.
