I've been having problems running DOS programs; every time I try to I get an Out of memory error message. I don't see how this could really be the problem, since I've got 768MB RAM and usually only have explorer and systray running. This is on 98SE. Any ideas?

(edit) Forgot to mention; this is a fresh install of 98. I hoped that reinstalling would fix the problem, but apparently not... (/edit)

config.sys and autoexec.bat aren't loading any drivers, as far as I can see. Here's all that's in em:
config.sys
SHELL=C:\COMMAND.COM C:\ /E:4096 /P

autoexec.bat
SET PATH=C:\WINDOWS.001;C:\WINDOWS.001\COMMAND;C:\Perl\bin\;%PATH%

Would adding

device=c:\windows\himem.sys
device=c:\windows\emm386.exe noems
dos=high,umb
devicehigh=c:\windows\command\drvspace.sys /move

help at this point? They're listed in that MS link you posted...

these should

device=c:\windows\himem.sys
device=c:\windows\emm386.exe noems
dos=high,umb


I stay away from anything that says drivespace, if your not using disk compression leave it out
