I don't have one of these. But I am thinking...

After playing with google this is a 486/33-based system. Unless it has  
some kind of specific IO for your legacy system I'm surprised you  
can't get away with FreeDOS in a VM  image. Maybe it's relying  
specifically on the 33Mhz timing or a special parallel port mode that  
is set in the BIOS (ECP vs. EPP or whatever.) Does it have some funky  
ISA card in it?
