Sorry!! I wrote my message in a run. Some punctualizations...

A TEXT MODE capture programs, sensible to codepages.

THEREFORE, I removed all the InDOS-related code (and int 28h scheduler, 
etc), and the program WORKED, now I can shoot FPK applications as well.

By the way, I am planning to release the program under GNU-GPL, it's not 
too efficient, too restrictive (only VGA), not too fast, but it took 
"only" some hours of my time, and works, that's what I needed. If 
someone is interested, do let me know...
