dosemu versus reserved keys

I have a client who is using Kubuntu 6.06LTS, and is running dosemu to emulate an old wang terminal, and it is working fine for that purpose. The only real problem is, the dosemu window needs to be run in fullscreen mode for the fonts to be readable. This is fine, but it order to minimize the windows, he has to press Ctrl+Alt+F... He would like to be able to use Alt+Tab to simply switch applications and re-focus something else, but it doesnt seem possible, as this is a function of the desktop environment/window manager, and i guess since the terminal has the focus, it doesnt accept those key presses...

My question-
is there a way to make Alt-Tab work from with the terminal focused? If not, is there a way to at least customize the keyboard shortcut to make the dosemu window fullscreen? He would like to have a shortcut that is a bit more within his reach, keys that are closer together.

Thanks in advance,

try xdosemu or dosemu -x which makes it run not in a terminal but an x window. Much handier.
