This is how the OS/2 and WIN 3.1 formats work.  I'm pretty sure NT is the
same.  You can probably find the executable format documention on microsoft's
site somewhere.  In your microsoft compiler package there's probably an
object dumping or executable dumping program from which you can probably
figure out the format.  Or maybe they don't ship those... I should have one
with the WATCOM compiler package I've got around here somewhere.
