First, when booting OS/2,
and you see the "white-box" and the string 'OS/2'
on the top line of your screen,
hold the ALT key, and press the F2 key, once,
and then release both keys.

Then, watch the bottom line of your screen;
OS/2 will list each device-driver, as each is being loaded.

Note that OS/2 "sorts" the lines in your 'CONFIG.SYS',
so that the order of lines in the file
will not be the order in which they are loaded.

Also, there is a 'PAUSE.SYS' device-driver, at:
 http://ftp.software.ibm.com/os2ddpak/html/miscellanea/ibmcorpo/
which can force a "pause" each time OS/2 loads it.
So, you insert a 'DEVICE=PAUSE.SYS' after each
"interesting" point in your 'CONFIG.SYS',
to create multiple "pauses" in the loading.

Since 'STARTUP.CMD' is a REXX program,
just edit the file, and insert the REXX command:
  trace ?I
as the second line of the file.

Then, REXX will show I(ntermediate) values,
and will pause between REXX statements.
