We have teased out the necessary conventional RAM on our workstations thus far by using the DOS program MEMMAKER, but a commercial memory utilization program such as QEMM or 386Max may eventually become a necessity.
After optimizing with MEMMAKER, I tried using two commercial memory management programs, QEMM386 (Quarterdeck Office Systems, Santa Monica, Calif.) and 386MAX (Qualitas, Inc., Bethesda, Md.), to increase the amount of conventional memory even further.
Like MEMMAKER, both QEMM386 and 386MAX have automatic setup programs that evaluate your configuration and determine the best way to place your DOS, device drivers, and TSRs in memory.
OPTI-NET Lite requires a peer-to -peer network; and 80286- or-higher server; at least 1MB of extended memory; a shared CD-ROM drive; MS/PC-DOS 5.x or higher with EMM.SYS, or MS/PC-DOS 3.3 or higher with a third-party memory manager such as Qualitas' 386MAX or Quarterdeck's QEMM-386; the Microsoft MS-DOS CD-ROM extensions; and a device driver supplied by the CD-ROM drive maker.
One exception is Qualitas, a developer of memory management utilities (386Max and Blue Max) that are often bought by in-house PC gurus for use by all the members of a department or workgroup.
One with an excellent reputation is 386Max, made by Qualitas, or their PS/2 version, BlueMax.
Use a memory manager such as Quarterdeck's QEMM or 386Max from Qualitas Software.
One way to get around this is to use a memory manager such as QEMM from Quarterdeck, or 386Max from Qualitas.
