I took this info directly from a DOSemu site here.
"The simplest and safest way to initially configure DOSemu is by using a boot floppy. Create a bootable DOS floppy from your favorite DOS distribution. DOSemu supports MS-DOS Versions 3.3 through 6.22, as well as DR-DOS 6.0.

DOS mouse driver for your mouse

You definately need some incarnation of dos, since this isn't a true emulator, but a shell in which dos can be run.
