According to Quarterdeck, the MS-DOS version 5.0 DISPLAY.SYS and
PRINTER.SYS utilities cannot be successfully loaded into upper memory
with the LOADHI.SYS that is included with QEMM-386 5.13 and earlier,
QEMM - 50/60 5.00 and earlier, and QRAM 1.01 and earlier.
You can load these drivers into low memory or you can use the MS-DOS
5.0 DEVICEHIGH command, provided you have a 386 or better processor
with at least 1 MB of RAM. The following configuration in CONFIG.SYS
file assumes you have the physical requirements to load devices high,
and the MS-DOS 5.0 files are in the C:\DOS directory.
For more information on loading devices and terminate-and-stay-
resident programs (TSRs) high, please see Chapter 12, "Optimizing Your
