Thank you (and Eric) for responding.

I have various Win95, Win3.1, and DOS programs which I wish to run under
Linux. The DOS programs are mostly games which are currently run in a DOS
virtual machine under OS/2. To date, I have discovered three issues which
need to be resolved.

1. The DOS 7.0 makes a number of int 21 and int 2f calls which
are not currently supported in WINE.

2. One of the games requires 320x200x4 graphic resolution.

3. Another game requires expanded storage.

I have previously tried each of these games in dosemu, with unsatisfactory

I plan to begin by cleaning up the "err:" and "fixme:" messages which is triggering -- with stubs where I can, and real code where I
must -- after which I will tackle the games themselves.

Have either of you any advice for me?
