I have a requirement to use the real-mode driver & MSCDEX to configure my Panasonic
CD-ROM under Windows95. I am launching the real-mode driver from config.sys and the
real-mode (ver2.25) MSCDEX from autoexec.bat. Yet, after Win95 comes up the MSCDEX
version is 2.95 and also the protected mode driver is up and running.
I would like to know the procedure to safely & properly use my real-mode driver.
Currently the only way I am able to get the real-mode drivers is by renaming the
ESDI_506.PDR in the Windows95\system\iosubsys directory. Doing this, I will not see
my CD-ROM in the Device Manager. Also the Primary & Secondary IDE drivers show up
with a bang (!) -- some conflict, hence disabled.
Definitely, what I am doing is not THE solution. Can anyone out here suggest
something more correct?
