Subject: Virtual memory exhausted!?

Hi,

First of all, thanks to everyone who responded to my earlier 
question about screen capturing utility. I ftp'd script11.zip
and concpy11.zip from oak.oakland.edu (SimTel/msdos/screen).

concopy.exe works, script didn't. (For whatever reason it's 
telling me it can't execute command.com. Anyone knows why?)
But concopy captures everything, even messages that don't
show up on the screen; e.g., include files. (Is this a feature?
a DOS or ??? I am total new with djgpp, please excuse me for
my naive questions.)

Anyhow, now that the programs have been compiled and object
files have been created. The compilation stop at the linking
stage. (We have a makefile, and we did a make.) A message was
given: "virtual memory exhausted". But a file was created. So
I coff2exe on the file. As expected, the exe file didn't 
executed.

So does anyoe have any idea on the virtual memory problem?
I'm running djgpp mait5 on a Gateway 2000 486DX/50 w/7meg
of memory. There are about, I think, less than 3 meg of 
disk space left on the hard drive. I am running emm386, with
NOEMS (djgpp works though, I don't know why).

any help will be greatly appreciated,

-RK
