When I type "mem" in DOSBox's shell, it tells me I have 640K of free regular memory, 32MB of free extended memory, and 32MB of free expanded memory. But when I mount a hard drive image with MS-DOS 6.22 installed, boot it, and do "mem", it only recognizes the 640K of regular memory and shows 0 free/0 total Kb of EMS and XMS. I have memsize=32, xms=true, and ems=true in my dosbox.conf.

Say xms=false and ems=false in your dosbox.conf. 6.22 can't install its XMS and EMS drivers if the memory isn't pristine and unoccupied by any other thing, such as the DOSBOX built-in drivers.
