Allocates memory for a specified number of disk buffers when your system
starts. You can use this command only in your CONFIG.SYS file.
Specifies the number of disk buffers. The value of n must be in the
range 1 through 99.
Specifies the number of buffers in the secondary buffer cache. The value
of m must be in the range 0 through 8.
The default setting for the number of disk buffers depends on the
configuration of your system, as shown in the following table:
Configuration Buffers Bytes
<128K of RAM, 360K disk 2 --
<128K of RAM, > 360K 3 --
128K to 255K of RAM 5 2672
256K to 511K of RAM 10 5328
512K to 640K of RAM 15 7984
The default setting for the number of buffers in the secondary cache (m) is
0 (no secondary cache buffers).
If you specify an invalid value for n or m, BUFFERS uses the default setting
of no secondary cache buffers.
