With this statement you can 'delay' the initialisation of the presentation manager. The effect is the same as if you would press 'ALT F1' during boot (as long 'OS/2' is visible on the left upper corner of the display) and then selecting the command-line option (F2 in Warp 4). After typing 'exit' the command-line will be closed and boot-up finishes. Useful if you have to delete locked files (specially locked DLLs).

CALL=\OS2\CMD.EXE <parameters>

ex:

CALL=C:\OS2\CMD.EXE /Q /C C:\MPTN\BIN\MPTSTART.CMD >NUL

For starting another instance of the command processor and executing programs

See RUN CACHE386.EXE and CALL MPTSTART.CMD
