ASM question

As a matter of fact, this is no real _hardware_ question, but since there is no Programming-ASM topic...
Could someone tell me why TASM doesnt accept "JMP FAR 80:0"?
It gives the error msg "Illegal direct" or something. What is the correct syntax?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To do an unconditional far jmp you need:

JMP FAR PTR 80:0
0

Sorry, but when I use "JMP FAR PTR 80:0" TASM gives this error msg "Near jump or call do different CS". So, it doesn't work :-(
Could someone please tell me what the correct syntax is?
Else I have to use MS-DOS debug.exe you know (debug actually accepts JMP FAR 80:0 :-))

Here's another variation that is probably better in the general case:

Ok, of course you can use the machinelanguage opcodes. But isn't there any possible way to do this without that? Something like this (I use TASM 4.0):

MODEL TINY
P386

CSEG SEGMENT USE16
ASSUME CS:CSEG

JMP FAR 80:0

CSEG ENDS

END
