ok, I run a PII-233 on a Tyan s1846s Bx MB. The operating system is Win98. I've just added a Creative Sound Blaster Live, value. Everything installs fine, until I install the software to load the card in Dos. It put a line in my config.sys file: DEVICE=C:\windows\emm386.exe which is my memory manager except that it locks my computer up while trying to load windows. The only other line in the config.sys file is DEVICE=\windows\Himem.sys above the emm386 line.
When I load a my cd-rom driver into the config.sys and put it between the other two lines, my computer boots up fine.
The cd-rom line looks like this: DEVICE=\winbak\command\Toshiba.sys/D:=MSCD000/N:1/P:220
