The MASM32 package is set up for 32bit programs - your code is 16bit. There's no problem assembling the code, by the way - your problem is in the link stage. The linker included in the MASM32 package doesn't support 16bit code, so you will need a 16-bit linker. It should be available somewhere on microsoft.com, or you can grab it from here: http://win32asm.cjb.net/

EDIT: straight from the source :) , ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES//LNK563.EXE .
EDIT #2: also see http://www.asmcommunity.net/board/index.php?topic=25659.msg187273#msg187273 , adding it to the FAQ section now.
