program called VRAMDIR.
It only runs in Win95 unfortunately but I've found it reduces DJGPP
compile times quite significantly. Eg. A complete build of my paint
program takes 27 seconds without vramdir and 17 seconds with it
Basicly what it does is redirect your TEMP directories into dynamic

I'm running it with 32meg but the docs suggest it's as much advantage to

The DOWN SIDE is the SW demo only runs for 30 minutes which I found not
really long enough to evaluate it fully but I've been running the $10
