I have a setup of config sys commands (menu structure). Originally i had taken a file / example from Phil`s computer lab homepage.
Now i have on my K6-2 system (64Mb ram installed), around 615kb to 620kb free memory, either with EMS or XMS setting.
Almost ever driver then will be uploaded into the upper memory (640kb - 1Mb).
Now with my newer setup, the P4 northwood with 512Mb installed, i have copied excactly the same <.ink MSDOS file> from the K6-2 system to this pentium 4 system.
With this file, i can boot from Win98 SE directly into pure DOS 7.1.
The strange thing is now, that with loading the full setup, EMS + Mouse + cdrom, i have now around 560kb free memory.
With XMS, i have nearly the same >615kb like on the 64Mb ram system.
Now, i am searching more about this behavior. Maybe somone has an idea about this "mystery" ?
