When i use addresses defined in my .cpp files like this
"PTR = (long)(VIDEO_MEM.address+__djgpp_conventional_base)"
in my asm files (NASM) i wont get the right address. 

I thought the solution would be to do this instead:
"PTR = (long)(VIDEO_MEM.address)"
And then adding __DJGPP_CONVENTIONAL_BASE in my
asm functions. But I can't get hold of the __DJGPP_CONVENTIONAL_BASE
from my external asm (NASM) files.

This doesn't cut it.
[EXTERN ___djgpp_conventional_base]

Any suggestions?

And if anyone cares to explain a little about
the address change when using asm, I would be
very greatful.

Thanks in advance !!
