Uploader Notes

This verion of CDROM.SYS will support most generic CD-ROM drives.

For multiple devices, use several "/D " parameters in both CDROM.SYS & MSCDEX.EXE.

Only one copy of each should be loaded, the device names must match.

Using "/L " to assign a logical drive letter the first CD-ROM is recommended.

Additional devices will be assigned to succeedng letters.

"/DMA" & "/UDMA" parameters are handled by CDROM.SYS if your board has support.

Use the "/E" parameter with MSCDEX.EXE to free up more conventional memory (requires an extended memory manager).

The install program in the zip will copy the files & add lines to your AUTOEXEC.BAT & CONFIG.SYS.

It also adds a "LASTDRIVE=" to CONFIG.SYS.

You will need to edit these if you have more than one CD-ROM device.

"The driver options appear to be for DOS or Win98 although the box says it is supported by Win95. I installed the DOS version and it doesn't show up in my Device Manager. I guess I have to boot to DOS in order to use this new CD-ROM - won't that be handy!"
