Thanks very much.  I'll have Steve try to trace the problem. I am
rather DOS illiterate, I'm afraid.  What do you mean by "Will the

emm386 without any options:


I do not recommend a no-option approach if there are any problems suspected or flagrant. At a minimum the X=TEST option should be present. You can also try NOVDS in case there is a SCSI conflict.

Hello, all:

Steve tells me it works without emm386 loaded, but fails with
X=test and NOVDS.  Is there any way to debug this remotely?



Some encouraging news for a change.

The machine boots to c: if i REM out the device=emm386.exe line in

I tried device=emm386.exe X=TEST and device=emm386.exe X=TEST NOVDS
in fdconfig.sys but got the same boot error as before.

I'm not a DOS expert by any means, but I recall something about
extended memory manager and I suppose that's what emm386 must be.

Where do I go from here? Can I live without emm386?

Thanks for sticking with me on this.
