^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

But of course! It's a 32-bit 'trap program', they runs your whole
computer in VM86 mode, paging in memory from above 1 megabyte to
some 'window' below 1 megabyte.

Any attempt to load it cause a trap to Linux when the PE bit is
attempted to be set.

You don't need emm386 because Linux emulates its functionality.
For instance, here is my CONFIG.EMU (like CONFIG.SYS) when VM86
boots DOS on one of my Linux machines.

Note all the wonderful load-high commands.
