    what does all this mean? it is my config.sys file and as im familiar with what it is i dont know exactly whats in it. i get a error at boot up telling me that there is a error on line five.
    rem ---------------------- MTM ATAPI CD-ROM ----------------------
    rem DEVICE=C:\MTM\MTMCDAI.SYS /D:MTMIDE01
    rem ---------------------- MTM ATAPI CD-ROM ----------------------
    [common]
    DEVICE=C:\CDROM\CDTECH.SYS /D:MSCD001 /UDMA2 /V
    LASTDRIVE=M
    really curious..i remember 7 0r eight years ago that there were many ways to edit your autoexec.bat file and config.sys to improve performance. is this unnecessary now as most maintenance is done from within windows. man i loved going into dos and tweaking things!!!! the following is my autoexec file..
    PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND;C:\CA_APPSW
    rem ---------------------- MTM ATAPI CD-ROM ----------------------
    rem ---------------------- MTM ATAPI CD-ROM ----------------------
    rem - By Windows Setup - C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 /M:10
    seems like there used to be more in these files...years ago!

    well this is line 5
    DEVICE=C:\CDROM\CDTECH.SYS /D:MSCD001 /UDMA2 /V

    apparently it can't find your dos cdrom drivers.

    You really don't need anything in the config or autoexec unless you still use dos applications for cdrom and sound, etc.

    But I maybe wrong, there's always the exception to the rule.

    Try placing rem in front of it and the line here also
    C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 /M:10


    any problems
