[Win9X] How to get available memory during driver init?

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
I need to alloc a large chunk of memory in my Win98 driver init, and I would
like to adjust the amount I allocate based on the system memory. All I have
found in the 98DDK is MMQuerySystemSize, which just gives back small, medium
and large. Anyone know how to get back something resembling the actual
amount of memory?

Thanks,

Phil
