Cannot boot up system using windows 95.Following messages appear:
c:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE
There is an error in your CONFIG.SYS file on line 2
c:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\DISPLAY.SYS
There is an error in your CONFIG.SYS file on line 4
C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\COUNTRY.SYS
There is an error in your CONFIG.SYS file on line 5

I have all master CD'S and floppy disc but cannot get ms.dos to accept an
instruciton to read them. What should I type in?

Go to http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm and create a Windows
95 boot floppy. Use it to start the problem computer, insert your
Windows 95 CD, type "R:\win95\setup" and press "Enter".

Hi Ben

I have tried this. Copied onto floppy from site suggested. Many thanks. But
when I type in the instruction "R:\win95 etc, etc, it comes up invalid drive
specification. What else I am not doing/not doing right??

Actually, the idea is to download and double-click the boot disk file
on a working Windows computer. If you still have the file, move or
copy it to the computer you are using now and double-click it. You
will prompted for a floppy.
