That would be great - perhaps you could put those up for ftp?

There is an x86 16-bit assembler and linker under linux; if anyone
comes up with a reasonable x86 16-bit C compiler, a lot of things
would be easier.

The main reason I mentioned the c.o.l.a posting was that they were
actually *selling ROMS* in single quantity. If you have a room full of
machines, the incremental cost of an EPROM burner isn't much, but it's
not practical for one-offs, as far as I am aware.
