That's one of the old DOS carryovers. If your files are set to 60 or more,
that should be plenty. However, sometimes you run into a problem of not
enough virtual memory break points. This is similar to file handles. In the
SYSTEM.INI file, make sure you have the following line:


in the [386Enh] section. You can check if the line exists by opening the
file in Notepad or SYSEDIT, and using Find. If it isn't there, add it. This
will probably solve your problem.
