INT 21 - DOS 2+ - GET FILE ATTRIBUTES

	AX = 4300h
	DS:DX -> ASCIZ filename
Return: CF clear if successful
	    CX = file attributes (see #01420)
	    AX = CX (DR DOS 5.0)
	CF set on error
	    AX = error code (01h,02h,03h,05h) (see #01680 at AH=59h)
Notes:	under the FlashTek X-32 DOS extender, the filename pointer is in DS:EDX
	under DR DOS 3.41 and 5.0, attempts to change the subdirectory bit are
	  simply ignored without an error
BUG:	Windows for Workgroups returns error code 05h (access denied) instead
	  of error code 02h (file not found) when attempting to get the
	  attributes of a nonexistent file.  This causes open() with O_CREAT
	  and fopen() with the "w" mode to fail in Borland C++.
