If you haven't changed anything, the exe is using the default autoexec.bat and config.sys files that are in, I think, windows/system. What you need is altered copies in the PW folder with the exe set to use them.
Copy the originals to the PW folder. Then edit them to remove stuff you know you don't need, like the CD drive. If that doesn't work, then remove stuff you're not sure you need. Set the exe to call the two files that are in the PW folder.
There is a lot of information in the "sticky" thread at the top of the PacWar thread list. Skip past everything involving Windows ME, and find where Windows 2000 and Windows XP begin to be discussed. This should be towards the bottom of the first page.
Civil war? What does that mean? Is there any foreign war? Isn't every war fought between men, between brothers?
