Error 2 is almost always "cannot find file". Do you have a high enough value for files in config.sys? They only take 42 bytes each so there are no reason to put it too low, I almost always have it set to 99. It could also be an effect of too little FCBS.

No FCBS statement in startup, never needed them before, will try, but suspect some outdated .dll file, probably overwritten by a program install
