    Which of the following files process the commands in the config.sys file on windows 98,

    A. Msdos.sys
    B. io.sys
    C. Autoexec.bat
    D. command.com

    I can't seem to find any info on what processes the commands
    But I am torn between B & C. leaning more to B:rolleyes:

    IO.sys processes the commands to and from the i/o devices (keyboard/monitor) as i recall.

    Autoexec is processed AFTER config.sys runs, so it cant be that!

    msdos.sys i cant honestly remember offhand what it does.

    but command.com contains all the dos commands and how the CPU should deal with those commands, its the first file to run after the bootstrap loader, its essential to everything running on the PC (at least in the days of DOS an 3.x). your answer is
    D: command.com

    I would also say D, for the points Fergal said.
