Have a look at the FAQs and Forum pages, eventually post your question/problem to the latter. The forum is monitored by Edward Mendelson and me, replies are mostly real quick.

Submitting a problem or issue: Describe it as detailed as possible, eventually attach your autoexec and config.txt files. If your autoexec.txt starts another batch file, include that also. A mere “My DOS program won’t …” doesn’t help to come to a solution, how simple that even might be...
Trouble downloading: Check if you’re using a download accelerator and disable that.
