    Hmm I cant give you a definite yes because 1) ive never tried, and 2) i never really programmed dos much, just unix, then Win32 and a little dos stuff to play with. But id say that if your using G++ to see if you have the pthread.h and pthread.lib, it is the posix (unix) pthread library that is ported for Win32 and i believe it will work in a dos(console) application. If you dont have it I believe you can go here and download it: hope that helps you.
