What this does is it forces your computer to have a dedicated swap
file which improve system efficiency since Windows no longer has to worry about
the size of the virtual memory (constant shrinking and enlarging of the swapfile
can severely slow a computer down) and defragging the HDD moves the swapfile to
the front of the drive for quick access.
Speed Up Win9x Boot Times:
For users of Win9x you can decrease the boot time of your
system a bit with a few simple tweaks to the MSDOS.SYS file in the root

From there scroll down and find the radio button "Show hidden files and

there, go to the "System.ini" window and scroll down to "[386enh]". Under
that header, modify or add these few lines.MinTimeSlice=40
(This allows for Windows Virtual Machine to run a bit
PageBuffers=32 (This changes the default buffer size
from 4k to 32k and should boost your HDD
DMABufferSize=64 (This basically gives more
buffer room to DMA devices to
