The DOSemu program for Linux might be useful.  It allows raw access
serial and parallel ports.

Outlook isn't the only mail client for Windows either.  A new version
of the Netscape mail client was released today:

Yes, I use DOSEMU for this type of stuff myself.  Since it is a virtual
machine monitor, it is able to trace the I/O accesses as well, which
aids in reverse engineering undocumented peripheral protocols.  When not
traced, the I/O is executing natively so it is very fast.

While a Dos emulator for Linux might work with some of the Dos based stuff,
That still leaves the Windows based programming software for the newer radios.
All in all there are some business applications for which W98se is the best choice.

I still have a Z80 emulator that runs CP/M programs under DOS. I have an
old 6800 cross assember that runs under CP/M. Also have an old inventory
program that runs under dBase II under CP/M. Both still run fine!

The use of the Wine software project's stuff might work with some
Windows-based radio programming applications, if one were dead-set on
trying to get it all loaded into a Linux box.

(Just an additional thought.)

Or VMWare, which probably stands a really good chance of running "darn
near anything" unless the manufacturer uses some sort of hardware key
that plugs into a port on the machine to activate the software.  Might
even work then...

(I hear Motorola has some software that requires the use of an iButton -
not to start up that thread again... iButtons as security devices...)
