If it's USB, then I don't think that there's any way it could work. DOS can't detect USB, only serial. If it's serial port, then it should be a snap, though I wouldn't know what to do unless I were to twink around with it myself.

Make sure the controller is installed and properly working under DirectX (Control Panel, Gaming Options or whatever).

Then download and install the freeware game engine Doom95. Do a google search for it. It's a legitimate freeware add-on.

Then run Doom95 and configure your controller. Point the loader to the doom2.wad you have in your Doom2 folder and run the game.

Viola!
