    I have a Pentium II 400 Mhz machine with 64 MB RAM and WINDOWS ME with AVG 6.0 Antivirus and Zonealarm 2.6 Firewall installed. I have a Problem while running FOXPRO 2.6 for DOS Programs, a Foxpro error saying 'Too many Files open' occurs (i am using around 30 - 40 tables+indexes), Remedy for Previous Windows version was simple, increase the no's of FILES=??? and BUFFERS=??? in the CONFIG.SYS file. But in WINDOWS ME my CONFIG.SYS file is totally blank and after modifying it with required or any statements I wish to include I and then after saving the file when I restart my computer the CONFIG.SYS file is again BLANK.
    How do I increase the FILES and BUFFERS settings in ME? are they used at all by ME? if not what is the remedy or can I include and implement the required statements thro' SYSTEM CONFIGURATION, HOW?

    WinME uses a new technique to handle the config.sys file.
    Read the following articles on the MS site for more details:
