what's the problem? doesn't it run?

Probably NOT with DOG/4SW or PMODE/W ...

What's the problem with DOS32A? (OK, it doesn't like external DPMI hosts, but this doesn't make it a priori unusable)

This is good, isn't it?

Options (other than compiling):
- find a decompressor (I'm not aware of any)
- decompress manually (it's open source)
- stub in another version of DOS32A (7.xx instead of 9.xx)
- get the DOS32A working, as there is no reason why it wouldn't work
