By EMM, you mean expanded memory, as opposed to extended?  I thought expanded
memory was long outdated, though memory managers may still be able to emulate
expanded memory.  DR-DOS has EMM386.EXE, I guess that would work?  I am not
up-to-date on FreeDOS.

Now I wonder if I can find DOS support for my on-motherboard sound, which is
CT5880, apparently Soundblaster PCI128-compatible (?), which shows in Linux boot
message and in the report from Ralf Brown's PCI program as Ensoniq.
