I'm using dosemu for an application, but haven't had any trouble with 
it.  The directory that the version of dos (I'm using the stock freedos, 
but got it to work with MS DOS 6.2 also) is in is generally your c:\ 
drive.  What does the prompt that you're trying to install Quake under 
look like (i.e. is it still a $ or # prompt, or is it a c:\ prompt)?  If 
it's not the latter, have you typed 'dosemu' to start the emulator (I 
know that this may seem obvious, and don't mean to offend, but just want 
to be certain).
