Mathematica 4.0 must have been published after vers. 4.2:

In[1]:=
\$Version
dgl1 = m*g - c*v[t]^2 == m*Derivative[1][v][t];
dgl2 = Derivative[1][s][t] == -v[t];
DSolve[{dgl1, dgl2, s[0] == h0, v[0] == 0}, {s[t], v[t]}, t]
Out[1]=
4.0 for Microsoft Windows (July 16, 1999)
From In[1]:=
Solve::incnst:
Inconsistent or redundant transcendental equation. After
Sqrt[g] Sqrt[m] C[2] 2
reduction, the bad equation is 1 - Cosh[--------------------]
Sqrt[c]
== 0.
