Subject: Notes on running QEMM-386 and DESQview 386 on the Toshiba 386 Model
5100.


Q: HOW SHOULD I CONFIGURE QEMM-386 OR DESQVIEW 386 TO RUN ON MY TOSHIBA 5100
(or 5200)?

QEMM-386 can be used as an expanded memory manager on the Toshiba 5100 or
5200, but may require some changes in the default configuration of the
Toshiba.

Under the default configuration, the Toshiba 5100 does not have any extended
memory, but actually has expanded memory hardware and an expanded memory
driver. If your Toshiba's memory is configured as expanded, QEMM-386 will not
see any extended memory to map and refuse to load, or will not work properly.

To set the machine up properly, run the Toshiba Setup utility and configure
640K of base memory and the rest of the memory as extended memory. There
should be no expanded memory configured.

Once the hardware has been set up so that all of the memory above 640K is
extended memory, edit the CONFIG.SYS file on the machine and remove the
expanded memory driver if one is being loaded. This file will probably be
called EMM.SYS or EMM386.SYS, but you may want to consult your Toshiba manual
to be sure.

After the expanded memory driver has been removed, you may run the QEMM-386
Install program to install QEMM-386 and it should be able to operate properly
on the machine for DESQview and other programs that might require EMS 4.0
memory.
