    ok i was bored yesterday and i put in a ms-dos disk in my old comp and made the drive bootable with the disk ( after changing lines in autoexec.bat and config.sys )
    i then tried to copy all the files from the ms-dos disk onto a folder on the HD, after that i copied all the files onto a blank floppy and made it boot up.. so i tried to put smartdrv on the bootdisk and change the config.sys and autoexec.bat files to load smartdrive but it wouldnt work and then the disk wasnt bootable, what are the commands to load smartdrive in mem?
    the ones i used are
    Loadhigh=A:Smartdrv.exe DOUBLE_BUFFER
    Loadhigh=A:Smartdrv.exe /l
    do i use the loadhigh statment in both files or do i use Device= in config.sys?
    also, i do need eMM386 to lload things in high mem right?
