If you install a DOS emulation like the Linux dosemu and a DOS disk image it should run.

You need dosemu.

Go to the WordStar & GNU/Linux web site at

http://www.wordstar2.com

There is a whole section (several pages) on using WordStar with dosemu, including installing dosemu and configuring it and WordStar.

More information on using dosemu issues can be found in the archived mailing list messages for the WSLinux mailing list.

And, just for completeness there is a second emulator for DOS programs for *nix called dosbox. However, it's primarily used to play dos games.
