maybe this would work
since it is only one game that needs to use dosbox

Just use DOS commands under the [autoexec] section to launch straight into the game. Clicking the DOSbox icon will launch DOS which will then autoexec into the game.
I'm hoping you know enough DOS lingo to be able to do it?
If you need a hand give us an idea of the directory structure and I'd be willing to write the autoexec lines which you can then just paste in.

Or better yet, copy it to a new file with a name consistent with the game, then modify that. DOSBOX.CONF is the default config file, and you don't want to touch that unless you want to change around what you get when you simply run the program without having it auto-load anything else. When you create a short-cut you can either add the path to the exe you want to run on the desktop after the DOSBOX one or specify your new CONF file (with any commands/environment changes in there) by using the -conf switch.
