    Hi,

    I just bought a 1.4 athlon thunderbird processor, a dfi am-75 tc board, with a 30 gig western digital hard drive partioned 4 gig for a system, with a gig of SDRAM, and 26 for games. I just recently put a fresh 98SE install on my new computer.

    Currently all I got on the config.sys is
    DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\setver.exe,
    and on my autoexec.bat
    has nothing on it.

    All of my programs that are not ms-dos based run like the wind, but the ms-dos programs end up on the same old thing. I cant even run the ms-dos prompt off of the start menu without it coming up. :confused:

    What am I doing wrong.

    In order to get that gig of ram to perform, you will probably have to put a MaxFileCache entry under Vcache in system.ini

    It should be 524288 (or less!)

    You can test the issue right off the bat by running msconfig and clicking on Advanced. Limit the memory windows uses to less than 512mb
