Hmm, one of the main reasons I started running 4dos in the first place is that it left more conventional memory free than Dos in a shell. This because 4dos swaps itself out when a program is run, later versions of 4dos were pretty extreme in that (less than 10kb resident iirc)

Admitted, this was in Dos 6 times, dunno what the win9x dosses changed for that, since I never used them without 4dos - qemm - hyperdisk
