Question Problem running Foxpro Application in Linux Desktop


I am facing a situation where I have to run Foxpro (Foxpro 2.6) Applications running on a remote R.H Linux server & Windows NT 4.0 Server using a Mandrake Linux Desktop Client in a LAN.
I have tried DOSEMU 1.0 to run Foxpro on Linux to connect to the NT Server, but the application crases frequently even on a Test environment. As I have to deploy the solution in a Enterprise environment runnning critical applications, I have not found it satisfactory.

I request valuable suggestions to solve the above problem so that a stable solution can be provided in an enterprise environment with more than 500 PCs.

I would prefer a solution based on OpenSource.

I did try running wine for Windows applications. But since it is a dos application i had opted for dosemu.
I think even Wine is not stable for an enterprise deployment. Any comments ??

There's a whole group of people who are doing the whole FoxPro on linux thing. They're also being threatened by some huge software company. Try a search on slashdot for the news and links to the people doing it.
