[Solved] FreeDOS questions

1 post in this topic

Hello.

I'm attempting to setup FreeDOS, so I can play some older DOS games. What I seem to be having a problem with is that there's no sound.

This is my FDCONFIG.SYS:

!COUNTRY=001,437,\FDOS\BIN\COUNTRY.SYS

!SET lang=EN

!LASTDRIVE=Z

!BUFFERS=20

!FILES=40

!DOS=HIGH,UMB

!DOSDATA=UMB

!set dircmd=/ogn /4

!MENUCOLOR=7,0

MENUDEFAULT=2,5

MENU 1 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386, no EMS (most UMBs), max RAM free

MENU 2 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386+EMS and SHARE

MENU 3 - Load FreeDOS including HIMEM XMS-memory driver

MENU 4 - Load FreeDOS without drivers

DOS=HIGH,UMB

123?DEVICE=C:\FDOS\BIN\HIMEM.EXE

1?DEVICE=C:\FDOS\BIN\EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=TEST

2?DEVICE=C:\FDOS\BIN\EMM386.EXE X=TEST

;123?DEVICEHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\xdma.sys

123?DEVICEHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\xcdrom.sys /C:FDCD0001

123?DEVICEHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\cdrcache.sys FDCD0001 CDRCACH0 15000

REM 123?INSTALL=C:\FDOS\BIN\BLACKOUT.EXE

REM 123?INSTALL=C:\FDOS\BIN\BANNER1.COM

123?DEVICEHIGH=C:\FDOS\BIN\MORESYS.SYS

SHELLHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\command.com C:\FDOS\bin /E:1024 /P=C:\autoexec.bat

123?INSTALLHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\lbacache.com 15000 TUNS

Only the first 3 options are available:

"MENU 1 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386, no EMS (most UMBs), max RAM free"

"MENU 2 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386+EMS and SHARE"

"MENU 3 - Load FreeDOS including HIMEM XMS-memory driver"

Do I need all of these?

Would someone be able to give me a basic config.sys, and autoexec.bat, that'd work in general?

And... one more thing. this PC is a Trigem Cognac, Pentium Celeron 667, with no sound card. I believe it uses AC'97 audio, which isn't Sound Blaster compatible.

Is there any way I could get sound in DOS games that require SB audio, like maybe through some type of emulation drivers?

-EDIT-

Nevermind, I just went out and bought a used, working, FM sound card.
