Bjorn is right, you only need emumodule for a 'full-feature' dosemu.

If you neither need DPMI nor WIN-3.1 nor IRQ-passing nor background
debugging nor stressed timer access, then you should compile
dosemu _without_ REQUIRES_EMUMODULE.

Anyway, NEVER let kerneld load/unload the _current_ version of emumodule, it
is not aware of such a condition and may get unloaded while 'dos' is active
( which may crash you system ). Emumodule is not a 'drivers', it's sort of
(ugly but needed) on-the-fly-kernel-patch to overcome lack of kernel support.

Better load it at boot-up via ./dosemu/load_modules.sh.
