after trying out some dos games,im left with startup probs...after verifying pool data ..windows is now starting your msdos based program..how do i get rid of this?..then config and autoexec load followed by about 20 c: prompts...how do i get rid of these? then a pause,then windows98se loads.it doesnt affect windows performance,but it is annoying,and i like to learn new stuff anyway,thats why i was fooling with dos in the first place.any help appreciated.
