According to Tall Tree Systems, which can be reached by calling (415) 424-8324, if a customer is having a problem installing MS-DOS 5.0 with a JRAM board installed in the computer, try the following steps:

    Create a bootable disk from the previous DOS version.
    On the bootable disk, create a CONFIG.SYS file that contains only the device driver for the JRAM board, and set the device statement to allow for 640K on the JRAM board:
          DEVICE=C:\JBOOT.BIN 640 /FQ -C

    Save the CONFIG.SYS file and reboot the system with the floppy in drive A.
    Run the setup for MS-DOS 5.0 from the A prompt.
