Chapter 12. Using Peripherals > Understanding Device Drivers

Understanding Device Drivers

Unlike some operating systems, such as Windows 9x/ME, NT/2000, or OS/2, DOS does not include much built-in support for peripheral devices. Instead, most devices require the addition of device drivers to your DOS configuration in order to access the devices in question.

Spending some time familiarizing yourself with this important topic can help you save time when you need to add or manage various device drivers in your system.
