I am trying to run a game in DOS, it is telling me i have 573008 bytes of conventional memory but 581000 is required.
I have a windows 98 sytem with 256MB of ram.
How do you allocate more conventional memory to DOS?

how do i load them into system?

i just double click the .exe in windows and it opens up a dos window to run the game. I could restart in DOS mode but i dont have a clue how to move around in dos from folder to folder. i am just stuck on C:\> or whatever it says.
