On topic :-) Here is a post I did to my local lug, may be relevant.
there is a way to do this one time , works on reboot but I lost the
reply on that one.

"I have found a solution, of sorts, as to why Dosemu does not run on
2.6.12 + kernels, basically anything after Debian Sarge. It seems that  2.6.12 
the kernel folks added 'radomization_va_space' . This breaks dosemu 
v.1.2.x and some other programs. The workaround for the v.1.2.x series
is to enter, as root, at a comand line of choice,:
'echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space'.  Dosemu now works in 
Debian Etch...yea :-)"
