Can anyone send me the windows 98 FIRST EDITION config.sys file in a text format? thanks. my dumb self accidentally deleted it.
 
well i guess first edition was almost same as win 95 osr2, basics here:
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS /TESTMEM:OFF
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE RAM

DOS=HIGH,UMB,NOAUTO
FILESHIGH=30
FCBSHIGH=1,0
BUFFERSHIGH=30,0
STACKSHIGH=9,256

rest should be handled by windows drivers

Mine shows much less

DOS=SINGLE
DOS=HIGH,UMB
Device=C\Windows\Himem.Sys
Device=C\Windows\EMM386.EXE NOEMS

DEVICEHIGH=C:\CDROM\IBMTPCD.SYS /R


BTW I have an old IBM 390E and the Windows 98 was loaded via a recovery CD, so the last entry is probably my laptop specific.
