Aha! The Win95 DOS VM (virtual machine) strikes again!

As far as I know, the Win95 VM can only address 16mb of memory.

'Right Click' on the MSDOS icon (you'll have to do this from a file
browser box, or from MSExplorer, you cannot 'right click' on the icon in the
start bar) and you can adjust how much memory to allocate to a VM when you
start one. This is great for systems with limited memory (i.e. not yours).

Hope this helps,
