If I reboot into Ms Dos mode from the shut down menu, when I get to dos and do a mem, nothing is loading into upper memory.
Win95 has added the LH before the drivers that need to load in the dosstart.bat but nothing is going  high..  How do I get these to go into high memory.. Do I need to add the emm386.sys line to the dosstart.bat?  There is no emm386 line in my  win95 autoexec or config sys.. Do I need to put them there?

Two options for you, using emm386.exe in config.sys:
When expanded memory is needed for DOS-mode add:
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE RAM
DOS=HIGH,UMB

Or when you want to have maximum UMB's use:
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE NOEMS
DOS=HIGH,UMB

in your config.sys

You should be able to loadhigh now, if it doesn't, let me know...
