Topic: FreeDOS 1.1
Hi: It seems I'm the first to post in this message board. When I boot FreeDOS 1.1 in my machine, I am presented with four options by the OS:
1 - Load FreeDOS with JEMMEX, no EMS (most UMBs), max RAM free
2 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386 (Expanded Memory) and SHARE loaded
3 - Load FreeDOS including XMGR XMS-memory driver
4 - Load FreeDOS without drivers

I'd like to know what is the difference among them. Of course these options can be read in the fdconfig.sys file, but some of its contents escapes me. I use freedos mostly to run chess.exe, a chess program from Psion and recently I have installed MASM 6.11 on it (from Microsoft).
