     No, error message says parsing error, not read error. For me, there
looks like broken memory contents.

The line in question is indeed syntactically correct.

The error message is caused by a read error because (1) everything works fine when using either EMM386 v2.04 or EMM386 v2.05 with VDS disabled (NOVDS parameter); (2) the kernel cannot read the command interpreter from the disk; (3) the kernel cannot read any file specified when it asks for the full path to the command interpreter to use.

Of course, it would make much more sense if the kernel could report that it was unable to read the specified file from the disk instead of reporting parsing errors on lines which are perfectly valid.
