Okay, good.

That's kinda weird.   :-/

This PC of mine has Lucid Puppy, and a while back I installed the
binary from dosemu.org, so its CONFIG.SYS may differ from yours
(sysctl needed, still beeps but at least runs, uHexen2 ftw!).

But it uses FILES=40 as default, so 400 would *definitely* be too
much. (255 is max, I think.) BUFFERS=10 is default also (but I doubt
=100 would break anything and don't know of any obvious limits there.)
