Subject: 386MAX 6.01 and the GO32 extender

From: "Steven C. Cole" <scole AT doorstop DOT Berkeley DOT EDU>

I recently started using 386MAX 6.01 as my memory manager (since
another application I use requires DPMI, and I'd rather not use
windows), and now the go32 extender reports

	CAUTION !!!! This EMS driver used address 1B0000H.
	This memory area is broken by handle_screen_swap().

and prevents me from running anything which uses go32.  The code which
generates the error seems to be in vcpi.asm (get_interface), but since
I have *no* expertise in the MSDOS memory management schemes, I really
don't know just what the problem is.

Has anyone had any success with 386MAX 6.01 and GO32?  I'd like to 
instruct 386max to behave differently, but can't specify any addresses
greater than 1Meg, so I'm not sure how to do this.  Alternatively,
hacking the go32 source is a possibility, but I don't have access to
Borland's C compiler or assembler.
