Does anybody know all the lines needed in config.sys and autoexec.bat ? I have successfully reinstalled my Win95 but foundout that there are very little "stuff" in both files compared to what it used to be. Any suggestions ?

Windows 95 does not need a Config.sys or Autoexec.bat in order to function.

The only reason that you would need those two files are if you need to load any realmode drivers, define a path statement or set your sound variables.

If your system is functioning properly without them, then don't worry about it.

If you have devices that are not working such as your CD rom and such you may need to add the appropriate drive in the config.sys and MSCDEX line to the autoexec.bat
