Does SMARTDRV.EXE in AUTOEXEC.BAT 'steal' 2mb of RAM from Win98?

I only ask because since using it, Win98 only thinks it has 190mb (rather than the 192mb as detected in BIOS).

it may be that the "missing" 2meg, is allocated in windows to your graphics.

if it has always been like this then i wouldnt worry.

Hmmm... I have been doing a lot of fiddling around with my PC recently but I thought it had only occurred since putting SMARTDRV into AUTOEXEC.

It doesn't seem to make any difference to anything so it's only a minor point anyway. Just asked out of curiosity really :)
