"ms dos" compatability mode

I HAVE 2 HARD DRIVES AND THEY HAVE A CONFLICT WITH THE IRQS.  I PREVIOUSLY ASKED A QUESTION ABOUT THIS PROBLEM AND THE SOLUTIONS I GOT DID NOT SEEM TO WORK. (PER THE PREVIOUS RESPONSE TO MY PROBLEM) I CHECKED THE REGISTRY AND THERE WAS NO "NOIDE" STATEMENT.  I HAVE DISCONNECTED THE DRIVE OTHER THAN THE MAIN DRIVE AND THE CD ROM BUT WHEN I REBOOT IT STILLS SAYS "RUNNING IN MS-DOS COMPATABILITY MODE".  THE DRIVES WORK BUT NOT AT "OPTIMAL SPEED".  I HAVE A PENTIUM 200 W/ MMX, 48MEG OF RAM, 1 520K DRIVE, 1 3.2G DRIVE (3 PART), 16-BIT SOUNDCARD, 4X CD-ROM, A 3.5 FLOPPY, AND A 5.5 FLOPPY.  ALSO, THE MAIN "C" DRIVE IS SET AS THE MASTER DRIVE.  I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO FIX THIS PROBLEM FOR GOOD SO IF ANYONE HAS ANY OTHER IDEAS...I WOULD BE GRATEFUL!!!TB

I can not see your previously asked question in your user profile.
If you have Intel's chipset on your motherboard, go here for a PCI Bridge fix that will correct the hard drive controller configuration:

The readme file there has all info needed.

Can you get bus mastering drivers for your mother board and install them?

I agree with Jburghardt, it sounds like you need drivers. You can get them from the motherboard manufacturer.

It seems that the drivers you are using are DOS drivers and not Virtual drivers (vxd) files that windows uses.
