    Help about some procedures in MS Article 314106

    1. One such instruction in the article is this: "Check the Config.nt and Autoexec.nt files in the SystemRoot%\System32 folder for non-standard settings."

    Question: How does one know or learn what the standard settings are?

    2. A 2nd. instruction reads: "Use a REM statement to remark out all entries except the following default entries."

    Question: How, exactly, do I use a REM statement to remark out entries?
    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you. The address is www.metrocast.net/~wumply/exper-1.html

    Nope--I had suspected I was having DOS-program related problems but the program I suspected was NOT a DOS program. I confirmed this from the source of the program. My questions came from the MS article I'd read and I just wanted to get the answers to my questions so I would know a little more in general.

    Remark out all entries except the following default entries:
    Code:
       Config.nt
       ---------
       dos=high, umb
       device=%SystemRoot%\System32\Himem.sys
       files=20
    
       Autoexec.nt
       -----------
    
       lh %SystemRoot%\System32\Mscdexnt.exe
       lh %SystemRoot%\System32\Redir
       lh %SystemRoot%\System32\Dosx
       lh %SystemRoot%\System32\Nw16 (only if CSNW is installed)
       lh %SystemRoot%\System32\Vwipxspx (only if CSNW is installed)
    How, exactly, do I use a REM statement to remark out entries?
    REM [entry]
    e.g. REM lh %SystemRoot%\System32\XYZ.exe.
