If you don't have enough ram to runn your app in a DOS window while in Win98, you can reboot using Control F8 to get your maximum memory. My box gives me 628kb or so. Heck, just opening a DOS window I can run a 608kb program.

You are an amazing bunch of guys who know a lot not only about structural engineering but also about computers. It looks that your responses made me decide to get a Windows 98 machine with some modifications (additional software that chooses the OS I wish to run and maybe more). I have two more questions: Question One: If I choose to execute DOS software that requires minimum of 600KB of FREE conventional memory under DOS (600KB Largest Executable Program Size, LEPS), will Win'98 let me do it? Probably anyone running Win 98 machine can easily check it. If, it turns out that, standard LEPS under Win 98 is less than 600KB, can I increase it to a minimum of 600, or what has to be done to run such program under DOS. (One particular program that I use often is not designed to take advantage of expanded/extended memory). Question Two: If Question One is answered in a satisfactory way, what utility programs shall I install on the computer to have the best possible control of the machine. Please keep in mind that the cost of such utilities has to be reasonable because I am not a mistress of Bill Gate$. I will listen very carefully what you have to say on the subject. Thank you for your kind future responses.
