I think you need kernel 2.0.28 at least. And perhaps dosemu-0.66.0 as
well.
There is an ambiguity between some versions of the kernel and some
versions
of dosemu, but I never understood what it was exactly... tsx-11 says
|  If you are running Linux 2.0.28+, use dosemu-0.66.0.tgz.            
|
|  If you are running Linux 2.1.20+, use dosemu-0.66.0.tgz.            
|
|  If you are running Linux 1.2.x,   use dosemu0.60.4.tgz.              
|
which implies that NO version of dosemu will work on kernel 2.0.0...

Interesting...   I will be grabing the source for 2.0.28 soon..

thanks again for you help,

You might as well upgrade to 2.0.29 now (I had the exact same problem).
Unfortunately, after the upgrade, it still doesn't work.  I get an error
message something along the lines of "your kernel doesn't support
vm86plus", and I have no idea how to fix this.  Could someone please
help?

        Updating the kernel is small beer, providing you don't run your system
way down level. Just check you have all the stuff, see
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes. I find that something you want to
run suddenly will not more often that the other way round, that's why I
keep bang up to date when I can and my machine is stable.
        I need a stable machine to do my work stuff, so go for it.

All you need is a newer kernel. In the distribution maybe a patch for older kernel
but I think there is no one for kernel 2.0.0. Try to get a new kernel. You will
need kernel 2.0.28 or newer to get the vm86plus service to your kernel.

Dirk.

You need to compile dosemu against 2.0.29 sources. The error message
you're seeing is somewhat misleading, as it checks the presence of
vm86plus-support 'the old way' (= emumodule or kernel patch)

: vm86plus service not available in your kernel

There should be a script file with dosemu called loademumod, or something
like that.  It doesn't exist any longer in dosemu 0.66, which is fine
since it no longer seems to need it.  But if you're still running dosemu
0.64, you'll need to execute the script to enable vm86 support.  What
it does is load a module into your kernel, so you'll need to have that
capability compiled into your kernel.  Best of luck.
