When I run Doom 2 in MS-DOS mode on my Windows 98SE PC, it hangs for about 30 seconds during loading on the part that says "Init DOOM refresh daemon". During gameplay, the disk icon shows up fairly frequently, and the game will stutter or pause for a brief moment when this happens. The strange thing is, if I run the game from within Windows without rebooting to DOS, I do not experience these issues. I have only noticed this issue with Doom 2. The original Doom seems fine. Is anyone aware of what could cause a DOS game to have differences in disk performance when run under Windows versus being run in DOS mode?
