I'm in the process of ordering a hard disk and expansion chassis for
the IBM PC that I use at work.  I am already using a hard disk and
DOS 2.0 at home.  Now my question.  I have the option of ordering
either DOS 2.0 or DOS 3.0 with my expansion unit; is DOS 3.0 worth
the extra memory that it uses.  I make extensive use of RAM disks so
the memory used is an important issue.  Has anyone out there upgraded
from DOS 2.0 to DOS 3.0, was it an easy and worthwhile experience.
I am interested in any opinions.  Please reply by mail, I will post
a summary to the net if there is enough interest.

Thanks for any help,
P. Michael Guba
