I am playing with my IBM PC AT, and I am wondering if there is anything better than just the default HIMEM.SYS for memory management. (I'm using DOS 5)
It has 512 K of base memory, and an Everex EV159 expansion card, which adds an additional 128K of base memory (to get the max 640K), and 1.5 megs each of XMS and EMS.
I tried FDXMS286.SYS, but that worked nearly identically to HIMEM.SYS, except it used slightly more conventional memory (about 1K).
What are my options here? It's a 286 so I can't use miracle-workers like JEMMEX or QEMM, which I'm used to.
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.
