HELP: msd.exe hangs using my autoexec.bat and config.sys

Hi, everyone,

I have recently encountered a problem with \dos\msd.exe.  msd.exe will hang
-- stopping at 'msd is examing your system' -- if I boot my machine with
the following autoexec.bat and config.sys files.  msd runs if I boot a clean
machine, ie. hold down SHIFT while starting.

AUTOEXEC.BAT

I am using a IBM ThinkPad 750c with 8M RAM. I do not know if this is related,
but, if I boot a clean machine, I could run msd.exe and my 14.4 external modem
works perfectly using Telix for Dos 3.22.  However, if I uses these files,
msd.exe hangs and my modem could not do any file transfer ( tons of "Bad CRC"
while doing file transfers.)

My modem is on COM 1 and my mouse is PS/2, I do not think there is a conflict.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Truly,

1. Using multiple autoexec.bat & multiple config.sys files

I end up using different configuations of equipment with my notebook computer,
and hence want to boot with different configuations depending on what I'm doing.
Is there some clever utility that lets one switch between multiple boot configurations
(i.e., allows multiple autoexec.bat and multiple config.sys files)?  It can be PD or
commercial, but it has to work very robustly.  Thank you very much.
