Smart Drive (SMARTDRV) is a standard disk cache driver for DOS, which creates a disk cache in the extended memory. When a program requests data from the HDD or CDROM the data is also copied to the disk cache.

Edit AUTOEXEC.BAT insert something like:  

    C:\Dos\Smartdrv.exe 2048

Note if loading MSCDEX.EXE for CD-ROM support, then load SMARTDRV after MSCDEX.EXE so the CD-Drives also gets a diskcache.

Never used it before but i found at ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/diskutil/ccache11.zip an other diskcache utility for DOS

Furthermore you can check for general memory tweaking etc at:
