CD redirector, e.g. not related to RAM disk at all.

Honestly dunno what it does at the low level, never looked closely at
its internals, but it (MSCDEX, NWCDEX, SHSUCDX, etc.) basically is
only used in conjunction with a CD-ROM driver, e.g. ATAPICDD.SYS,
UIDE.SYS, etc. If you don't need (or want) CD access, you can ignore

Here (when using RDISK as RAM driver)? No, not for this task. All you
course, feel free to add more.   :-)

P.S. I think all current FreeDOS XMSv3 drivers require 386+. For
instance, FDXMS286 is only XMSv2 (64 MB limit). Jack's RDISK is
limited to 2 GB, I think. (I know I know, 99% of people won't care,
but just for clarity, I'm mentioning it anyways.)
