    FD-HIMEM under FreeDOS uses 2.03k of low memory, MS-HIMEM - 47.8k. Ant
this is not much more, than 1.14k of MS-HIMEM under MS-DOS.

    FD-EMM386 uses 2.54k of low memory. MS-EMM386 uses 3.04k of low memory
plus 5.15k (14Ah para) hidden from UMB.

as told, the 47.8KB usage is a bug in MS's kernel (IO.SYS , dos 7.10, Win95OSR2..Win98SE),
which can be patched. I once provided a link to a french site having the patch.

Arkady, do you still need compiling instructions for FreeCOM?
Steffen has made a big effort in writing a tutorial, but it's HTML:

CD \
unzip d:\COM083BE.ZIP <>
unzip -q <>
del cd freecom\suppl\ <>
unzip -n d:\ <>
cd .. <>
vi config.mak <>
build <>

There should be a COMMAND.COM located in the current directory now.

There is also a sample build log <>.

The build script uses the environment variables SWAP and LNG <>.
