What do you mean it won't work? Maybe doesn't happen anything when you press it? or it appears another symbol? Please, try to be a little bit more specific.

If it is the second case, maybe the problem lies in the keyboard layout selected on the DOSBox configuration file. Edit it and try different layouts. If the first case is the problem, then I don't know what could it be right now

Hammer around the enter key whilst on the dosbox prompt, great chances you'll find it somewhere there, dosbox uses by default the US layout.

Or set you keybinputs correct with the
keyb xx command in dosbox.

List@ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout

...... Or read the dosbox readme, section
I can't type \ or : in DOSBox.

I am currently typing from my notebook.

Normally, I type the / key with shift-3. I type \ by hitting CTRL-ALT-(the small button right next to the 1 key, top left).

In resume, your milleage will vary depending of your own laptop. Try every normal key, then try every key by using the CTRL-ALT combo, then try using your function key.

I'm on a hot streak... Literally.
