Hi,

what command line do I insert in the msdos.sys in the C:\ root directory to turn off the windows logo when the machine is booting up?
Looks like:


[Paths]
WinDir=C:\WINDOWS
WinBootDir=C:\WINDOWS
HostWinBootDrv=C

[Options]
BootMulti=1
BootGUI=1
DoubleBuffer=1
AutoScan=1
WinVer=4.10.2222

AFAIK all you have to do is enter the following (or change the number if the heading already exists)
logo=1
and then save and restart to see the changes
Good Luck...sorry if it makes the system unbootable

Also change these:

DoubleBuffer=0 (Turns off DoubleBuffer-Only needed for SCSI drives)
AutoScan=2 (Scandisk scans automatically at startup without asking you to press a key)
Logo=0 (Disables Logo)
Dblspace=0 (Disables Doublespace)
Drvspace=0 (Disables Drivespace)

DosFreak,

wouldn't disabling the SCSI double buffer in the msdos.sys negatively affect any UDMA66 hard drives you may be using in Win98, as the device drivesrs for UDMA66 sit in the SCSI section of Windows Device Properties?

thanks guys.

by the way, when I reinstalled Win98 and IE5 accordingly, IE% got placed in a different folder along with Outlook Express. But I had a few email messages in Outlook, but now I cannot find them because of the re-install. Does Outlook have a "mail" storage folder like Netsscape does, so I can hunt down my outlook old-email messages since they are hidden somewhere in my computer.

thanks again
