I have a specific application for a 386 based PC, where I need to
allocate MORE than 640k of conventional memory (no, I don't mean UMBs,
I mean CONVENTIONAL memory).
I seem to recall that there's a trick you can use with EMM386 to mark the
A000-AFFF region as conventional if you're not using funky VGA modes.
Does anyone recall the syntax needed for this?
