Running DOS software in R.H. 9

I have a program that was written to run in DOS. It's a custom shopping cart program that runs in the background as needed. What would be the best way to continue to use it in Linux (if possibl)? Everything else is done through CGI, including calling the program, in fact I can forward the scripts to anyone that would like to see them. Any help is appreciated with this. Thanks.

There's a DOS emulator down there: dosemu ( ). I'm not sure if it can be useful to you... but you might be able to modify your scripts to "dosemu command" ... might be helpful!
