it seems that my config.sys and autoexec.bat are empty now,
since i got a new hard drive. I am unable to do ems stuff, or even memmaker or even help in dos now. What can I do to correct this. I tried to reinstall windows to no avail.

What this basically means is that Windows has fully optimized itself for your computer.  In Windows 95, the only purpose of these once-crucial files was to call 16-bit drivers for compatibility with devices that didn't have 32-bit drivers.  Since you have no files, Windows evidently has found 32-bit drivers for every device in your system.  Also, there is no need to do EMS work in Win95 because it automatically adjusts its memory settings to provide the best performance for your computer.
