Default dos/raid/irqs

i tried to reset swap after speed disk defrag im using raid0 on 98
the ok button is greyed out after i select let me configure
could it be norton
or raid0 2x maxtor plus9 on promise 20270
and the dialog box says c:-1561 i never have seen a minus sign

now i have a new prob
i cant exit to dos and get back into win
i can cold boot f8 to prompt and get in

the only sys changes i made were
ive had sporadic cold boot lockups
when i ran norton disk dr after it said mbr was reported wrong by win fix ? so i did
also i newly set pci latency at 96
and i use cacheman with page file buffers at 30[ all along ]
at this point
you are my answers im over my head

and now for one last thing im using the raid controller
pnp os set to no in bios can i shut off like pci 1 and 4 5
will i get free irqs
i have 4 devices on 11 and 4 on 15
would this help/

before i come down with some new syndrome
