I have recently "upgraded" my computer to Windows-95, and have found 
two things:

1. The RAMDRIVE.SYS program is in C:\WINDOWS, not C:\DOS. 

2. The SET DVPPATH statement in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file doesn't seem
to work anymore.

Therefore, I have added a new LOGCFG.DAT command DVP PATH, which allows
you to put DVP PATH = D:\ in your LOGCFG.DAT file, and that works.  You
can also view/set this parameter from Control-J.

Which Icom were you using?  Which Icom did you put in the LOGCFG.DAT 

Sorry it took me a while to get to this - been a very busy week.
