In my quest to get helppc running and working in wine, I noticed that it
tries to access the text mode buffer directly (b000, I think). This
memory doesn't seem to be emulated in dosmem.c and my exploration into
how to implement it were in vein. Could anybody please help?

Anyway on another note, to get the program to exectute this far I had to
add a hack to vga.c. What the program was doing, was, it waited until
the light pen trigger was set, when it read the light pen trigger set
(bit 1) from the vga status register (3da) and then it would wait until
it was unset again. I've attached a patch to solve this problem, but its
definatly not the right way of doing it, anyway see what you think.
