That is, are there any programs for emulating an NEC PC-9801 (the computer the first five Touhou games were made for) designed to run natively on Ubuntu (or Linux in general)? I haven't been able to find any.

I may have found a solution. From the Touhou Wiki:

Neko Project II, T98Next and Anex86 work just fine under Wine. Also, if you're into two-player PoDD with a gamepad, JoyToKey also works under Wine.

There is also a port of Neko Project II for Linux and Mac OS X called Xnp2. However, as of this writing there are some sound problems that need to be investigated; using np2fmgen in Wine is recommended instead.

I haven't had time to test any of them yet, but it sounds promising...

dosbox emulates an 8086+ DOS PC.

Instructions for installing it, a little information on how to use it?, etc. – Seth Feb 8 '13 at 14:43
