I searched for this as best as I could, but I could not find an answer on here :S

Can anyone tell me how to open a DOS program on OS X? I tried DOSbox/Dapplegrey but that didn't work. Any other suggestions?

Fusion or Parallels. Create a DOS VM and run whatever DOS programs you have that way. Or, use Boot Camp to install XP or Vista and run your DOS program using a command prompt. (cmd.exe)

Regards.

Since DOS is not very resource hungry you might consider DOSBox

DOSBox, a x86 emulator with DOS
