Won't work.  http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/v2faq/faq3_5.html states:
"3.5 Can I run it on a 286?

 Q: Why can't I run DJGPP on my 286? It has protected mode also....

 A: True, but the protected mode isn't an issue here.  Gcc doesn't care
 much about memory protection, but it does care to run on a 32-bit
 processor, which the 286 isn't.  A 386 or better CPU really is
