Happy New Year folks! I'm putting together a 486—my first vintage build. I keep running into the same error trying to install 6.22 Plus Enhanced Tools from floppy. It boots from floppy, but then setup.exe fails to run with the "program too big to fit in memory" error. I've tried a number of different 6.22 and 6.2 images from a variety of sources and always have that problem. Interestingly, if I use a 6.22 Upgrade image, setup.exe launches fine, but I'm having other problems with that image.
I've checked the autoexec.bat on the install disk and all it has is nlsfunc, keys us, and setup.exe, in that order. My system reports 640K of base memory.
Any suggestions? Could it be a hardware configuration issue? Thanks a bunch.
