The Zenith Data System Z-Note portable computer Windows for Workgroups device driver, I82593.DOS, does not work correctly with MS-DOS 6.x if it is loaded in upper memory.

The following problems may occur if you load I82593.DOS high:
    You may receive a critical error from Novell NetWare. (Your system may stop responding [hang].)
    Your system may return to the MS-DOS command prompt when you try to start Windows.
    Your computer may reboot spontaneously.
    Your computer may hang.


To work around this problem, add *I82593 to the MEMMAKER.INF file and then run MemMaker. This prevents MemMaker from loading I82593.DOS high.
