Description

This article is from the WINE WINdows Emulator FAQ, by Dave Gardner dagar@ix.netcom.com with numerous contributions by others.

3.5: I have a Drivespaced, Doublespaced or Stackered DOS partition. Can Wine run MS Windows binaries located in such a partition?

Yes, but only if the operating system supports mounting those types of
drives. Currently, NetBSD and FreeBSD do not.

There is a Linux filesystem driver that will allow read/write access
through Doublespaced and Drivespace 1.0 drives. More specifically, it
supports mounting DOS 6.0 and 6.2 Doublespaced, DOS 6.22 Drivespaced, and
Windows 95 Doublespaced compressed partitions (read and write access works
fine, but write access is slow). It can be found at:
