Help,
I have a new machine with Windows XP. I have 2 programs I must use which will not run under XP (keeps jumping out of running condition to start over icon prompt at specific points). Had problem installing windows 98 due to the size of Memory. Microsoft gave a work around by defining the size of the work page in the system.ini file. I got it to load Windows 98 but get the not enough memory error when trying to enter into the safe mode. Any help or suggestions?

ok...but why did you say "I have a new windows xp machine"

oh well....

Get your self a dos boot disk (windows 98) and boot with it.

At the a:\> prompt, type

edit system.ini

insert the following ([vcache] may already be present, if so, just add the minfilecache and maxfilecache lines)

[VCache]
MinFileCache=51200
MaxFileCache=56320
