When I try to run mcafee bootscan from floppy, I get an
insufficient memory error. MEM shows 151k used with only
486k of conventional left. Tried EMM386, and it stole a
a couple more K. I've got 64M. If I boot to Win95, open
a dos window, I have 509k free--Used 80k. Something is
using up conventional mem right away, an I suspect it's
tied to the bios. Saw some notes on the CIH virus, and
tried to look for a flash update. MB is a plain jane
apparently made by DFI --- Model G586IVP Rev. C+



Any and all help would be appreciated. Can't find a
flash to download, Award has apparently been sold 2x.
and the store I bought this from has gone out of
