Running dosbox 0.61 in windows 98, It ran the first
time i tried fine, but times after that it crashed
right away, and left me with the message 'not enough
memory' when trying to run ANY application. Have to
reboot after it crashes because of this.

    well it seems what either windows or dosbox isn't freeing
    all the memory it owns. I think dosbox doesn't free it all
    correctly if a crash happens. But win98 isn't capable of
    freeing it as well.
    In the next version I've improved the memory clear routines
    on a crash. So this problem is probably solved.
