If you have long lines in your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files, they may be truncated when you run MemMaker.


MemMaker truncates lines longer than 128 characters. If you have lines that are close to 128 characters long, they are still truncated because MemMaker temporarily adds SIZER information to the front of the lines when it tries to determine the size of your device drivers and terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs. If your MS-DOS files are stored in C:\DOS (or any 3-character name directory), MemMaker typically adds 26 or 27 characters to each device driver and TSR command.


To work around or avoid this problem, make sure all the lines in your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files are no longer than 101 characters in length.
