I experienced similar troubles in the past. It appeared finally that the EMM 
manager I was using was not-so-compatible with my chipset hardware. Upgrading 
to the latest JEMM386 fixed all my problems. :-)

To upgrade your FreeDOS system easily, you can use FDUPDATE. This program will 
check in what versions your local packages are, and upgrade them using the 
repository at http://www.viste-family.net/mateusz/fdupdate/
Of course, it requires a network card with a working packet driver.
