DOSKEY.COM provides two main functions: command line history and macros.
NDOS.COM loads command line history automatically and will provide
macro support through a feature called "aliasing." If macros are set
up using DOSKEY.COM when NDOS.COM is the SHELL statement of the
CONFIG.SYS file, the DOSKEY.COM macros will not function.
For example, if the following line appears in your CONFIG.SYS file,
DOSKEY.COM macros will not function:
To avoid this conflict, either do not use DOSKEY.COM, or change the
SHELL statement to load the Microsoft MS-DOS 5.0 command processor
SHELL=C:\DOS\COMMAND.COM C:\DOS /P
