 HELP: Allocating 64k memory blocks

I'm using Turbo Assembler (latest version) to program some
graphics routines, and ran up against a problem.  

How can I allocate a 64000 byte chunk of memory that starts on a
segment boundary (I figure all blocks should, but just in
case...)?  I'm looking for something equivalent to the following
in C:

   pointer = malloc(64000);

Any suggestions?  I'm not certain that this is the right group,
but it's the closest thing I could find, so...  Please e-mail any
replies.  Thanks.

later this year."
