    I notice with gdb/linux each instruction is offset by 5 while debug/dos each instruction is offset by 3. What is linux doing that dos isn't?

    Is it consistently 3 or 5? Do you know how the programs were compiled? Are they on the same machine?

    Yes, under dos it is always 3 and under linux it is always 5. I'm running the same two programs on different computers and assembling and linking them with different programs

    dos/masm/ml/debug
    linux/nasm/ld/gdb
