    Okay.. if you edit c:\windows\system32\config.nt it basically tells you it replaced config.sys and it has a part that says
    "You can use the EMM command to configure your <Expanded Memory Manager>".. Seeing that they removed the emm386 command. How do I use this EMM command in config.nt? (I trying to make it so I can play dos games.. I know I need this)

    Ya know what..

    Ya know what.. nevermind.. I think I am just going to uninstall and go back to 98SE. The reason being that I look at this message board and many other boards as well as my problems myself and XP is just too friggin buggy. Maybe when Microsoft works things out I will reinstall it ^^.

    would the Help and Support interface on WIN XP help you out..i was poking around in there...gave alot of good data on command line functionality in win xp...including a complete breakdown of supported dos commands..all alphabetized for you... just go to START>HELP&SUPPORT and then do an index search for command line options..

    also.. it may work, it may not... using the Program Compatibility Wizard... good for troubleshooting and evaluating how programs that ran on older operating systems will run or not on Win XP. you should be able to find this under START>PROGRAM>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS i think... all i know is that i moved it from the menu to my im not exactly sure of it's original location..but the icon looks like a white question mark within a pale-blue circle icon...

    anyway..its worth a shot...

    good luck.
