[ProgSoc] MS-DOS bootdisk
I want to create a MS-DOS bootdisk so that I can play dos games on my
win95 pc. I have a couple of question regarding this.
1. How do I maximise the amount of free convential memory (ie the stuff
under 640k)? You may assume that no drivers need to be loaded (ie
autoexec.bat and config.sys are currently empty). From memory, there is
about 580k free. I'm pretty sure this can be improved, but I don't know
2. Can I install the normal ide cdrom driver (MSCDEX or something) on
the boot disk? If so how, using as little conventional memory as
ps - I'm actually doing this for my little brother. But I knew if I said
that, someone would reply with "yeah, sure it's for your little brother"
