I've run memmaker on DOS and managed to boost my available RAM to 571K of
conventional memory.

With QEMM and Stacker I can get 607 k free. I had to use the Sept BIOS to get
this Config to work the latest one caused my machine to crash. Nearest I could
figure it was due to the floppy drive.

I've been running qemm 7.04 on the Aero, as well as Stacker 4.0, without any
serious problems. The only difficulty is that you can't use the QEMM Stealth
mode if the floppy's plugged in. I think Stealth mode remaps some of the BIOS
stuff, including compaq's unusual floppy setup.
