Ahhh... 17-18Y ago, DOS memory optimisation by hand was one of my
particular tricks. I was quite the expert. Completely obsolete skill
now, though.

My suggestion would be to find a copy of QEMM386 and run Quarterdeck's
OPTIMIZE on your system. It did turn your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT
files into something rather spaghetti-like, but it wrung out every
last byte of free RAM. I suspect you might get further with that than
with FreeDOS, although I could be wrong...
