You can but will need the hardware to do it. Your options are the Kryoflux and the Super-Card Pro, both will read almost any disk format, not just Amiga and will also write them back to floppy.

I use DosBox Game Launcher (http://members.quicknet.nl/blankendaalr/dbgl/) in Linux which imitates D-Fend, pretty good too.
