DOSEMU problems (wp60, BIG SCSI disk, etc)

I'd like to say first that dosemu is really looking pretty good since
the first time I tried it many, many moons ago.  I have been following
and testing silently the stuff I'd like to run.  Since I hear rumours
of an upcoming .60 version, I thought I should throw in a couple of
things which are ALMOST working perfect.

I have dosemu running pretty well.  I can get Heretic, Descent,
and a bunch of other stuff to work...I, of course, have a few

1)  My second DOS disk is a 2.0 Gig SCSI that has a 1.6 Meg DOS partition
    on it.  For some reason, using partition acces (yes, I re-made
    it with the new mkpartition) I keep getting sector not found
    errors.  Sorta like some CMOS thing.  I have to use lredir.
    No biggie.

2)  Xdos doesn't seem to work remotely...I see this is a known bug,
    but kinda curios.

3)  Cursor control isn't 100% perfect under xdos...especially noticable
    using elvis (for dos).  Specifically, the underline cursor is often
    1 line above where it should be...I kinda look  at it as on overline
    cursor most of the time.  Most of the time after exiting the editor,
    I get the same overline cursor in my DOS window.  Kinda funny.

4)  Running WP6.0 for DOS I keep getting:
    ERROR: timer error AX=0x5c00
    ERROR: timer error AX=0x3500
    ERROR: timer error AX=0x5bbe
    ERROR: timer error AX=0x3501
    ERROR: timer error AX=0x3681
    ERROR: timer error AX=0x5b03

    Seems to be running ok; however, I'm no WP6.0 guru.

5)  If I have the serial line uncommented for my modem, then run
    dos (or xdos) AND I'M online...well, I get disconnected.  It's like
    it does a reset...kinda irksome.
