I was very exited to find this site! SpacHulk was 1 of the first games to really impress me, both the board game and especially the PC-game.
The manual is very clear and it works like a charm.
However, I get an error very quickly during the intor of the game:

exit to error: DMA segbound wrapping (read)

I found in the DosBox fora to change the sound device from sb16 to sb or sb pro. Changed this in the confog file, but issue persists.

I have no idea what this means, let alone how to solve this.
Any help?

Installed as per guide and it runs fine until it shows the warhammer logos. The warhammer 40k causes it to freeze and not respond.

Any ideas anyone?

Just set the dma from 1 to 5 in the dosbox.conf
no sound at the beginning but directly after the error we got sound ;)

Again... This works better:

sbtype=sbpro2
sbbase=220
irq=7
dma=1
hdma=5
sbmixer=true
oplmode=auto
oplemu=default
oplrate=44100
