Hi Michael,

you were right, I was not aware that devload fails
to figure out an appropriate UMB size and therefore
fails more often than devicehigh to load devices to
UMB space. Reading the sources made me realize that
this feature is missing. Of course it can be added.

However, devload will still not be perfect:  Some
drivers only have full performance if you load them
before you load any command.com for the first time,
which means you must load them before any bat file
or prompt which would let you run devload... ;-).
For the same reason, DEVICE is still needed even if
DEVLOAD works as good as it can get for low RAM...
