I dont think Dr. Dos includes a memory test function; memtest86 is by far the most intricate and accurate memory tester.

It should start automatically when you boot to the CD.

The one I use is Memtest86+ which is an updated version. Just download the precompiled ISO and burn it to a CD. When you boot, it will start and run the test. Here is their FAQ.
