Crc recommends that you have a bootable disk on hand

CRC recommends that you have a bootable disk on hand in case of MEMMAKER difficulties. It will allow you to reboot your system and undo the changes wrought by MEMMAKER. SMARTMON allows you to monitor the performance of SMARTDRV, the disk cache of DOS 6.0, when you are using Microsoft Windows. DOS 6.0 also provides sets of commands for specific types of computer users, including several valuable commands for users of portable computers. POWER implements memory management on portable computers. If your portable computer complies with the APM (Advanced Power Management) specification, you can conserve up to 25 percent of battery power. Also useful, but not restricted to users of portables, is INTERLINK, which allows you to move files from one computer to another. Customizing features To make it easier to customize the DOS environment, DOS 6.0 gives you more control over your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files. You can, for example, control the booting of your system by choosing not to load the CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT. Or you can choose which device drivers in the CONFIG.SYS to load. In addition, Microsoft has changed the way AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS are structured. With DOS 6.0 you can have multiple CONFIG.SYS and/or AUTOEXEC.BAT files, and choosing the configuration you want is as simple as pressing a single key. This makes it easy to fix problems with either the CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT or to load specific configurations, for example, to start a network. Creating and fine tuning multiple permutations of these files is not for the faint of heart, however. These "new" CONFIG.SYS files, which look much like the WIN.INI file in Microsoft Windows, can become dizzyingly complex.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
