Dosemu VGA Graphics and Diamond S64D/PCI

I can't get DOSEMU to work with the {vga console graphics} option.
I have a Diamond Stealth 64 (DRAM) in a PCI slot.
I tried the above option line as well as other lines with chipset diamond and chipset S3.
I have two kinds of behaviour, either the dos emulator starts booting the dos session, the
screen blanks and nothing else happens. In this case I can kill the dos session by switching to
another console with Ctrl-Alt-Fx (Alt-Fx doesn't work). ANother behaviour is that the emulator
starts booting and immediately reports a CPU exception error which I can't really make out.
I tried starting the emulator with "dos -D+i 2> err" which should report ports that the
emulator tries to access and fails, but this didn't report anything wrong. Is this a problem
with DOSEMU or because I have a PCI bios, should I disable PCI bios support in the kernel or
something? If anybody encountered the same kind of problem and found a solution any help would
be most welcome.

By the way is there another more appropriate news group or mailing list in which to report
problems with DOSEMU?

        Anybody knows how to configure dosemu (.60.1) which I run under
Linux 1.2.5 to get graphics. I tried many configurations in dosemu.conf
(and chipset s3 memory 2048) but only simple "vga" without graphics works.
My system is: VIP ASUS-SP3, PCI 2.0, AMD DX2-80, 16MB, Quantum 730 MB,
