Understanding "config.sys" & "autoexec.bat" in regards to "himem.sys" and how to load drivers there would definitely have helped you gain the most available free memory

For example, lines like:
config.sys
Code:
DEVICE=C:\Windows\HIMEM.SYS
DOS=HIGH,UMB
DEVICE=C:\Windows\EMM386.EXE NOEMS
autoexec.bat
Code:
LH C:\Windows\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE /D:CD-ROM
