Program too big to fit into memory.
This issue can be caused by any of the following possibilities:
BIOS update issue
Autoexec.bat / config.sys error
When installing an operating system and encountering the error "Program too big to fit into memory", ensure that it is being installed onto a partition or FAT that is supported by the operating system. For example:
MS-DOS Can only be installed on a FAT12 or FAT16 partition, not NTFS or FAT32.
Windows 95 OSR1 Can only be installed on FAT16.
Windows 95 OSR2 Can only be installed on FAT16 or FAT32.
Windows NT 4.0 Can only be installed on a FAT16 or NTFS partition.
Additional information about fdisk can be found on our fdisk page.
Additional information about FAT32 can be found on our FAT32 page.
BIOS UPDATE ISSUE
If you are encountering this issue when attempting to upgrade the computer BIOS, ensure the following:
Ensure that the file downloaded from the respected manufacturer page is not on the floppy diskette (unless otherwise instructed). Many times the compressd BIOS file, if placed on the same diskette extracted to, will run out of available disk space and cause this error. Generally, the file downloaded must be saved onto the hard drive and then extracted to the floppy diskette.
If this does not resolve your issue, it is recommended you contact the computer or motherboard manufacturer for additional recommendations and help on successfully running the BIOS update.
AUTOEXEC.BAT / CONFIG.SYS ERROR
If you are experiencing the error "Program too big to fit into memory" when booting the computer it is likely that a line or TSR loading in the autoexec.bat / config.sys is causing the issue.
It is recommended that users running Windows 3.x / Windows 95 / Windows 98 that you ensure the emm386.exe and himem.sys are being loaded. If this does not resolve the issue, attempt to temporarily remark or remove any lines that may not be needed from the autoexec.bat / config.sys.
Windows 95 / Windows 98 users may also want to consider temporarily renaming the autoexec.bat / config.sys. To do this follow the below steps:
Click Start / Settings / Shutdown / Restart the computer in MS-DOS mode.
At the MS-DOS prompt type:
cd\ <press enter>
ren autoexec.bat autoexec.ch <press enter>
ren config.sys config.ch <press enter>
Once the above files have been renamed, reboot the computer to determine if the issue has been resolved.
Note: If you are unable to get to a MS-DOS prompt because of this error message, please see document CHDOS.
Additional information about the autoexec.bat / config.sys can be found on our autoexec.bat / config.sys page.
Verify the computer has the latest virus definition / dat update. Computer viruses can cause this issue or other memory related issues.
If you are encountering this issue when attempting to run a software program or game and the above recommendation do not apply or resolve your issue, verify with the software vendor or developer if the program has any available fixes / patches or updates for the program.

Now, this is a little tricky,
Open winrar program up and drag your file in to the window of winrar. Winrar will open up the file you will see the stuff in it. Just extract to the desktop by pressing the extract button.
If you know what Winrar is then, shortly just open up the file with winrar.
Any questions; reply.
