Comments:

  FreeDOS ignores everything on a REM line.
  Use remarks to add explanatory notes to the config.sys, and 
  to disable lines in the config.sys file so that they won't run.
  In CONFIG.SYS you can also use ";" at the beginning of the line.
  REM is a command internal to command.com and needs no other file in
  order to work. REM also exists as CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS
  command.
