I have a Dell Wyse thinclient machine 800Mhz with 256MB ram installed.
I hooked up a standard (newish) flat-panel SVGA monitor through a VGA to DVI (I think that's what its called) and plugged it into the thinclient. I notice that when screen modes change, it takes a good 5+ seconds before my screen updates with the new mode.
So I decided to format the drive to use with DOS 6.22 instead of the DOS that comes with Windows so that I can easily see all the background action without the windows logo trying to mess up the screen and so I have extra disk space since the only way I can get an image onto the system is by using a USB cdrom drive with a cdrom as if it is a floppy disk. and already I'm a few KB short of having a full "floppy" disk. Newer versions of programs tend to take more disk space.
When I did my research, someone claimed the himem.sys that comes with DOS 6.22 can only allow access to 64MB space because it stores memory values as (2-byte) integers.
So I'm wondering, what would be the best MS-DOS program or driver to use that would work better than himem.sys that allows DOS to recognize the full 256MB of memory?
