Well, LEM.EXE calls RTM.EXE and RTM.exe contains signs of not being a 
pure DOS program.  It contains references to USER.EXE and KERNEL.EXE 
(probably some old Windows 95 thing? ... LEM dates from 1997), and the 
following string:
You have attempted to run Windows in enhanced mode while
running in a shell under a protected mode program.  This
is not a compatible configuration.  Run Windows in standard
mode instead (win /S).

Possibly what you are trying to do is not going to be feasible...
