i have a few lines in autoexe.bat in the
system configuration utility that have REM
before them. what does this mean and why
are they there. thanks.

REM makes a comment rather than an execution.

GUDGE, as spikeychris says, a line with rem at the beginning is ignored by the computer. This can be done for either of two reasons. The line could have been put there by the programmer as a reminder, such as "rem the following line loads the thingummy driver", or it could be done to disable a command that was originally needed and for some reason needs to be disabled but, possibly not deleted just in case it is needed later.

... maybe a very slightly longer boot up. Unless you are experiencing any problems best to leave autoexec.bat alone unless you're 100% certain of what you are doing

Just for the sake of pedanticism

REM = REMark
