   Bring up Device Manager and double-click on "Computer". Hit the
   "Reserve Resources" tab, and tell it which IRQs, DMA channels, etc are
   in use by non-Win95 drivers. Reserving memory like this works just
   like excluding addresses in EMM386, or using EMMExclude= in
   system.ini.
   
   You MUST do this if you use real mode drivers or Win 3.1 drivers that
   Win95 can't recognize, otherwise when you install a PnP device it may
   try to allocate the used resources to the new device!
