DD>'if you have a 286 or better, else:

DD>bioseg% = &HFFFF
DD>biosoff% = 0
DD>def seg = bioseg%
DD>  call absolute biosoff%
DD>def seg

     That's CALL ABSOLUTE (0)
                          ^ ^
I believe.  That second form will also work in QBASIC,
the OUT form hung up my machine so badly it took the OFF
switch to get out of it (from QBASIC, a 386 LapTop)!
