I have tried jemm, nothing happens without an expanded memory manager.
The program just hangs without coming up without expanded memory.  
Jemm throws an exception 6.  MS-DOS 6.20 emm386 triggers a reboot.
Freedos emm386.exe crashes with illegal instruction occured.  The
vgacheck.exe and dskini.exe programs work just fine, it's coco3x.exe
that doesn't.  I would really like to hear from someone who tries
this software based color computer emulator, I don't see anything
stopping that.  Considering that Jeff Vavasour appears to be interested
in having his emulator available as freeware, it could probably be
distributed with freedos once someone determines how to get it working.
