An MSDOS user created text file that may contain specific commands and parameters that are read during the boot process.
The file on the PC that configures the operating system.
A systems configuration file located in the root directory of the boot drive. This file is the first thing executed after your computer boots. It can contain a variety of settings that determine how your computer will operate. Some computer configurations do not use this file.
In DOS and OS/2 a special text file containing settings that control the way that the operating system works. It must be located in the root directory of the default boot disk, normally drive C, and is read by the operating system only onces as the system starts running.
a file that the computer uses to learn what devices are connected to the computer and where the drivers for them are. DOS and Win95
A DOS boot file created at the root of the disk during DOS installation for most recent versions of DOS. It can also be created or edited with a text editor. It configures the workstation's DOS environment.
This file is used in MS-DOS based systems to load device drivers and configure the system during the bootup sequence.
A user-configurable text file, in the MS-DOS Operating System, that usually contains device drivers and system setup files. During the bootup process in MS-DOS, CONFIG.SYS is located and the external device drivers and configuration options in that file are loaded.
A text file which is used by DOS and OS/2 during system startup. This file contains commands that tell DOS how to communicate with the new hardware, to customise communication with existing hardware or to adjust your computer's memory usage.
A configuration file run when a computer boots that customizes the way the MS-DOS or OS/2 operating system runs. See also LANMAN.INI, PROTOCOL.INI.
A configuration file which the operating system executes every time it is started. It contains various commands used to set up your system for items like keyboard and country information. The easiest way to change the configuration parameters in the CONFIG.SYS file is to use the SETUP program.
A special text file that controls certain aspects of operating-system behavior in MS-DOS and OS/2. Commands in the CONFIG.SYS file enable or disable system features, set limits on resources (for example, the maximum number of open files), and extend the operating system by loading device drivers that control hardware specific to an individual computer system.
A file that your DOS computer reads every time it starts. The file contains information about how the computer is set up and what it's attached to.
The config.sys file is executed when you boot your computer (before running any commands in the autoexec.bat file). This start-up file contains commands that specify which devices to install and which device drivers to use. This file also contains commands that determine how the operating system uses memory and controls files.
The file contains all your current hardware configurable setting such as memory. I is loaded during the boot process.
The first file executed when a computer using DOS is finished booting up. This file tells DOS how to configure itself.
A text file DOS consults when a system starts up. This file contains commands that tell DOS how to communicate with new hardware, customize communication with existing hardware, and adjust your computer's memory usage.
An MSDOS computer file that establishes the MSDOS operating system environment and installs memory resident software such as device drivers.
A text file used by DOS and supported by Windows 9X that lists device drivers to be loaded at startup. It can also set system variables to be used by DOS and Windows.
In a DOS PC system, configuration file which contains system configuration commands. These commands are executed at system initialisation time.
text file that DOS reads when booting which instructs the computer about the configuration of the machine. Config.sys contains configuration commands which enable or disable system features, set limits on resources, and extend the operating system functionality by loading device drivers.
a special DOS file which controls the loading of device drivers. See AUTOEXEC.BAT, SysEdit.
CONFIG.SYS is the primary configuration file for the DOS and OS/2 operating systems. It is a special file that contains setup or configuration instructions for the computer system.
