I would remove some of the stuff from the config.sys file. When I get home, I'll try to send you a shorter example. Also, I've found that on many new computers, emm386 will map memory that causes various problems. The solution for me has been "jemm386" from the FreeDOS project.
I actually usually use the JemmEx program that replaces both himem.sys and emm386.
I have also had problems with DOS versions before Windows98SE ("7.1") failing on large disk drives - particularly if the MS DOS partition is at the end of the drive. However, it looks like you have done that.
Let me know if jemmex works.

Subject: [Trlog] TRlog / DOS 7.1 / 500Mhz processor / 1 gig memory problem
I am in the process of building a new computer for the shack from some
unused pieces I had. The board is a P2B-F with 500MHz processor and
1 gig of memory. I installed DOS 7.1 on one partition, but when
I try to execute the "install.exe" program I get the Runtime error 200
and when I try to execute TR itself, the computer hangs.
I do not have access to my current shack computer due to the distance
between my residence and shack but I believe it is also running a
500MHz processor, but the OS is Windows 98 run in command mode, and
the memory is about 500Meg.
Has anyone else tried to run TR under DOS 7.1 in a machine with
1 gig memory? Have you encountered the same issues, and if so
how were you able to resolve them?
The following is the contents of the DOS 7.1 config.sys file. My
DOS skills are a bit rusty, but I don't recognize anything there
that could be the problem. Is there something I am missing?
config.sys file contents:
DEVICE=C:\DOS71\ECHO.SYS W/e/l/c/o/m/e /t/o MS-DOS 7.10...
DEVICE=C:\DOS71\ECHO.SYS C/o/p/y/r/i/g/h/t M/i/c/r/o/s/o/f/t C/o/r/p.
A/l/l /r/i/g/h/t/s /r/e/s/e/r/v/e/d.
REM DEVICEHIGH=C:\DOS71\DISPLAY.SYS CON=(,,1)
SHELL=COMMAND.COM /P /E:640
I realize that the path command is not what it needs to be for a
functioning TRlog system, but the TRlog hangup occurred while
I was executing the file from within it's resident directory.
Thanks in advance.
