QDIIDE - What is This ?

After installing W95 I get the message:

"Compatibility mode paging reduces overall system performance, QDIIDE
in CONFIG.SYS forces MS-DOS compatibility mode".

I looked in CONFIG.SYS and found the line:

DEVICE HIGH /L:1,4400 = C:\QDIIDE.SYS

What can I do about this?

That is an IDE accelerator (i guess you have a QDI motherboard?) Remove this line and reinstall windows.. If you NEED this driver to run your system, there is nothing you can do about it.
