Katherine, I updated and reviewed The Colonel's Bequest, so I'm positive it does work - with DosBox. There are instructions on how to work DOS box here: http://www.abandonia.com/main.php?nav=index&FAQ=1

The download for the program is here:

You might want to check out the official DosBox FAQ, and particularly this part of it. It is quite helpful for users unfamiliar with DosBox.

I suggest you also read the pages about command line, internal programs (very important!) and the config file.

If that stuff is a bit too much for you, you might consider using one of the multiple frontend programs available.

It's all easier then it seems. So remember:
