Hmmm, interesting. Any memory-management utility (akin to MEMMAKER for MS-DOS) included for 286/386 systems?

Would be fun if you would try it on a 286 or a 386 I am running it on a 486 so I can run jemmex and it is great I think it works well with a 386 also.

I really need to get back to working on a 386/486 level DOS machine. It's getting to be a long, long time since I've worked with one. Grown far too dependent on cellphones and WinXP/Win7 machines. Even haven't done much of anything with Linux lately. All skills are getting quite rusty.... Sad

Mine were really rusty but enough to learn so much more. If you want to install from cd this works on machine without BIOS which can boot CD (as mine 486)
