DOSbox is a "DOS" emulator specifically targetted to run older style DOS
games. I know of no way to install a alternate OS in it.

I suppose if your alternate OS could be loaded via a method like loadlin
does for DOS & Linux, you might be able to get somewhere.

It looks like DOSBox is at least a rudamentary 386 emulator as it'll run
Ultima7, and Ultima8 (Which amazingly are on topic these days. :-) )

Haven't heard too much about QEMU, other than (in a entirely OT sort of
way) its a good way to run the x86 Linux NeverWinter Nights game server,
under PPC Linux. :->
