Honestly the only option I see for TASM is to use a linker that is able to output and absolute located binary.

You will also have to deal with 32bits for your OS. TASM handles 32bits ok but it is designed for generating Windows 32bits applications.

FASM and NASM have this clear advantage: they are able to directly generate a bin file without using a linker... Yes, this is very usefull at start... but for a big project you might need to link some modules or relocate things.

With fasm's file and rb directives you could link precompiled modules without any external linker.

Linking is not inserting precompiled files inside code neither reserving memory areas ... it is much more than that Wink

The most important part is relocation, resolving external symbols and selecting functions/code from multiple OBJs or LIBs and generating the final binary format.
