the code it needs to return to when it's done "installing" my TSR, at the
top of conventional memory.  In and of itself this is not a problem.  But,
the memory that the FreeDOS kernel uses is simply used without actually
being allocated (there is no MCB to prevent other programs from trying to
use the same memory).

This should be fixed (or at least better) in an upcoming kernel later this
year.  If you could direct me to one of your programs that works with
MS-DOS but not FD kernel that I can test with, I would appreciate it.
Given Tom's email, I gather this is a different but similar issue though.
