     There is possibility to get more than 640k of available base memory, if
you use neither EGA/VGA graphics nor any font loading service/program. For
this, add I=A000-AFFF option for EMM386 in config.sys or use some program,
like VIDRAM from QEMM package.

     If you will use EMM386 option, don't forget to use latest _development_
kernel edition (so called "unstable") from freedos.sf.net (which lead to
www.fdos.org) - I don't sure, if Beta9sr1 uses it, not the "head" edition
(which includes only part of patches from development edition).

VL> emm386 is 1.13,

     Update it to at least 1.15
