Is it mandatory that you shell out from NDN (for whatever specific task you're trying to accomplish)?

BTW, some apps don't need mouse or LFNs, so you can unload those TSRs manually/temporarily, if you need the RAM (as long as you have them loaded last, after all other unloadable drivers).

Are you using DR-DOS? This is why I preferred third-party drivers for RAM disk (TDSK) and cmdline history (TODDY) on my old Pentium. Those could resize/unload, unlike default ones.

Of course, it's also wise to just make a (D)CONFIG.SYS menu to choose at bootup which things to load. (And you can adjust FILES= and LASTDRIVE= accordingly, etc., to not waste what you don't need.)
