I thin you are going to have trouble in DOS unless you have a 32 bit 
option on your compiler with a DOS extender. That gets you out of 
that particular problem.  The problem is that DOS is old technology 

I personally use the Symantec compiler, but they don't sell it any 
more. I think there was a 32 bit add on for Borland but that isn't 
sold any more either, at least in the U.K. 

If you do get Symantec I can point you to a place where support is 
available (free) on the internet.

Best wishes
