I followed these instructions to install freedos: http://wiki.freedos.org/wiki/index.php/VirtualBox

I installed boom (doom clone) via fdimples command, and it works.

I try to launch Master Of Magic and I get the message: "You must have at least 2700k of expanded memory." ...

> What I tried?
>> Running 'mem' command gives the following result:
-----

>>> Yet magic.exe give the abovementioned message. I tried various parameters with JEMM386.EXE such as 'EMX' ,, removing 'NOVME' / 'NOINVLPG' flags -- to no avail...

What else could I try for Master Of Magic to recognize my Expanded Memory?
