I have sound in Win95, but when I restart in Msdos mode I have no sound.  I have an Ensoniq sound card.(if that helps)
I also have a dual boot and I do have sound in a "true" dos
environment. At any rate, could someone help me to get sound
in the Msdos mode of Win95?
Thanks!!!!

open the file called "config.dos" in notepad, see any lines referring to your sound card here? copy them & paste them into your "config.sys". open the file called "autoexec.dos" in notepad, copy any soundcard lines from here also. if you do not have a file called "dosstart.bat" in your windows directory, create a new notepad document, paste in the lines from the autoexec.dos & save as "dosstart.bat" in your windows directory. reboot your machine & try now.
