Yeah, the DiStella thing was just the lack of a processor statement.
I added it and it ran fine.  The DOS DASM from Robert Colbert's site
is the one I'm using.  But it won't compile the following:

	ldx	#2
	lda	$282
	and	#8
	bne	skip
	ldx	#0
Skip	stx	VSYNC  ; I get an error on this line

I forget the exact error, but I think it's "unkown label" or something
close.  Anyway, making the "S" in "Skip" a lowercase "s" lets it compile.
(It's not the "VSYNC" that's the's definitely the "Skip".)
