One thing to remember is if you don't have IRQ conflicts or non standard
things happening with your devices in DOS, chances are you wont in
Windows either. Even when you switch to the DOS mode.
Conversely (not the case for you) if you have a machine with not
conflicts in Windows with devices (Windows is managing the devices) and
try to run DOS apps where you must manage the devices Look Out as there
will be trouble in River City. I know, I'm dealing with the latter now.
