You missed Bernd's point.   He wants to use more than 4-GB of memory,
which is impossible with any current DOS software I know about.   One
or all of the XMS managers "still in maintenance" (my XMGR, Japheth's
HIMEMX, and his combination JEMMEX) would need an upgrade, to support
over 4-GB of XMS memory.

My own RDISK driver creates up to a 2-GB RAMdisk, but I wrote it as a
"FAT16" driver to run with old DOS systems, like my own V6.22 MS-DOS.
4-GB "FAT16" RAMdisks are possible, but not all DOS systems work with
them -- V6.22 MS-DOS "CHKDSK" CRASHES when RDISK is patched for 4-GB!
