Comments:

  This command is not needed on standard installations.
  STACKSHIGH changes number and size of hardware interrupt stacks available
  nn is number of different stacks and mmm is size in bytes of each one.
  In some cases you can use "stacks=0,0" to use only standard stacks
  instead of letting DOS allocate extra stacks for hardware interrupts.
  STACKSHIGH is like STACKS, except it attempts to load into high 
  memory first (failing that it should load in conventional memory).
  Note: The order you load devices may have a large impact on amount
  of free memory available. In general try to load large (in memory
  usage) programs into high memory first.
  Important: You should have a high memory manager such as HIMEM,
  HIMEMX or JEMMEX installed (prior device=himem.exe or device=himemx.exe
  in CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS) before using this option.
  STACKSHIGH is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other file
  in order to work.
