This problem might not even have to do anything with CWSDPMI, if you are
in a pure dos environment (ie You press F5 at boot), A bunch of
Microsoft Caching/Buffering extensions won't be installed.  You can try
to use SMARTDRV to better buffer files and such in DOS mode.  anyways
that is all I can suggest.
