All,

I need to increase the space available to run programs un a command window or batch file without resorting to MS-DOS mode.

E.G. where can I put:

BUFFERSHIGH=40,0
FILESHIGH=250
DEVICEHIGH=...
dos=high,umb

so that when a dos command window opens or a batch file executes I dont have IO.SYS eating 75K+ and FILES and BUFFERS are up high.
