greetings
I have an ancient Compaq Prolinea 4 with Pentium Overdrive in it. I am using NEC CD-ROM drive 273 which works perfectly in Windows 95, but when I restart in MS DOS mode, I get an error message claiming 'driver was not found'.

I have added the following line to my autoexec.bat and to my dosstart.bat (in c:\windows):
C:\sbcd\drv\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 /M:8 /V

and the following line to my config.sys:
DEVICE=C:\SBCD\DRV\SBIDE.SYS /V /D:MSCD001

what is wrong here?
