The DOS mode files are

Config.sys

DOS=single
DOS=high, umb
Device=C:\windows\himen.sys
Device =C:\windows\emm386.exe noem
DeviceHigh=C:\Windows\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE /D:TCPD0001
(this may be /D:MSCD0001 with another computer)
also if you computer has it's own driver it will take the place of C:\Windows\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE. My laptop is a Thinkpad with it's own driver so the line entry was, DEVICEHIGH=C:\CDROM\IBMTPCD.sys /R


Autoexec.bat

@Echo off (ignore the colored font, Echo is in red as it is a Tom's Hardware user name and not related to the autoexec.bat entry)
SET Prompt=$p$g
SET SOUND=C:\PROGRA~1\CREATIVE\CTSND
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1
SET PATH=C:\Windows;C:\
LOADHIGH C:\Windows\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE /D:TCPD001
(this may be /D:MSCD0001 with another computer)
Call c:\windows\command.com
C:\windows\win.com /wx


Again this is for DOS mode, while there can also be config.sys and autoexec.bat files in Windows 98 mode, they are usually blank or near blank. When in dos mode, if there are windows mode files they will show up as C:\autoexec.wos and config.wos.
