dosemu vs. dosbox?

I have both installed and I want to know which is better for playing old DOS games.

With dosbox, it is very slow and I am not getting any sound (it's trying to open ALSA sound, while I have OSS):
CONFIG: Using default settings. Create a configfile to change them
ALSA lib seq_hw.c:446:(snd_seq_hw_open) open /dev/snd/seq failed: No such device
ALSA:Can't open sequencer
MIDI:Opened device:none
I want to try dosemu, but before that I would like to know how to make dosbox faster and enable sound (I am using OSS with the i810_audio module loaded). I don't mind if I don't get MIDI music.
