hi this is a reply to all. ive recently installed an old DOS game called x-wing and had to then install DOSbox and make modifications to the options file as you have mentioned above.

ok this is what i have done to have it work perfectly on my widescreen laptop -

fullscreen=true (loads DOSbox in fullscreen aspect (alt+enter to revert))
fullresolution=0x0 (played with a number of settings inc 1024x768. however, opted for 0x0 to give best results)
scaler=2xsai (this gives best smooth pixel results for xwing. google others)

hope it helps. im new to DOSbox (though im from the era its a while since ive used DOS).
