ran scandisk, then diskdefragment, restarted computer and now it won't boot. message reads A:\DOS\EMM386.EXE error in config.sys file line 2. how can i access config.sys from the A:\>, because that's the only thing on the screen, and fix line 2.
Wow old DOS. I have not seen one of the post in a long time. If it is DOS 5.0 (If you don't now just type VER) or greater you should have an EDIT.EXE in you DOS directory. Just CD to DOS directory and type EDIT. This will open the DOS editor. Then go to File and Open -> Browse to your root directory and open the config.sys. Then you can just remove the line for EMM386 because it is just an Expanded Memory manager that enables you to load drivers into the Expanded memory.
That being said, why are you trying to boot from a Floppy Disk? Just eject the disk and boot from your hard drive.
