Looking for the manual to Flight Simulator 5 so I can attempt some troubleshooting with Bochs 6.2.8 running MS-DOS 6.22. Setup for FS5 says I don't have extended memory even though I've allocated 512MB to Bochs.

I can provide extra info (bochsrc.bxrc, screenshots, w/e) if that would help with troubleshooting.

A magic wand to fix my problem would also be nice, but I don't expect it. :-D TiA

You must set up the extended/expanded memory in Dos6.22.
You must add the following to your config.sys file:
Device=c:\Dos\emm386.exe
This will convert extended memory to expanded as required

The on-line manual for msft flight simulator 5 is here:
http://www.flightsimbooks.com/flightsimhandbook/

Requires 530mb conventional memory and 2 MB expanded memory

Ah, thank you. I saw that site before but it just seemed like a general flight sim helpfile.
